Serving The American Rinks

STAR Member Question of the Week

Were are looking to update an out dated Chilling System that was installed at our Arena (already used) in the 1970's. We have run the already used equipment for 44 years with proper maintenance. We have made some improvements recently-like a new brine pump, but the equipment has done it's work! We have begun looking for grants and funding for this project-any ideas about how to go about looking for support would be greatly appreciated!
