The ice is going into the arena.  Snow has been made on the ski hill on the days when it was cold enough.  
There is a board to look after the new Multiplex.  It is the Alliance Community Multiplex Operations Board.   The board has arranged for the CFCW Crazy Critters to come to Alliance on Thursday, January 31  to play a fundraiser hockey game.  Watch for further details.
