People may wonder what exactly we do at the arena during the summer when we don’t have events. At this time of year we allow ourselves some freedom for much needed rest and recuperation, both for the staff and for the building.
Internally we talk about the off-season, just as sports teams do, and we take stock of our strengths, weaknesses and where we can show improvement.
This off-season is already growing shorter however with Cirque Crystal, Frankie Valli, Chris Stapleton, Ted Nugent, and a few yet to be announced shows expected to perform over the next few months. We certainly look forward to hosting these events and trying out new things with our patrons. It allows us the opportunity to see where we still need to improve and where things are going well.
Before we know it it will be the end of summer and we will be preparing for the Otters training camp between Chris Stapleton and Ted Nugent.
Enjoy your summer! The staff at the Arena is working hard to get the building back in shape to allow all of our patrons to enjoy everything we have to offer!
