Latest IIC news


DEAR INVERNESS ICE CENTRE MEMBER/USER

Over the spring and summer months we have been busy making more improvements at the Ice Centre. To date we have:-

  •       resurfaced and relined the Car Park 
  •       replaced the guttering at both high and low levels
  •       the front of the building has been repainted
  •       certain areas of the buildings electrics have been improved

The Board have just approved the purchase of a new EPOS system (Electronic Point of Sale system) which will give us more control of accounting, invoicing and stock. It also has the potential to create and develop a membership database with exciting new benefits such as allowing us better access to card and contactless payments, lessening the need for cash payments. This system is also capable of accepting pre-payment for ice and bar purchases in a similar way that most golf clubs operate.

 

The Ice Committee and the Board have discussed trialling a project where a pre-determined number of curlers can pay a set fee for all their curling for the coming season. Payment would be made in one advance payment at the start of the season and a second payment in January. We would be looking for up to 10 people to trial this and if this is something you are interested in doing please contact us to discuss further.

We are sincerely grateful to the members who have come forward to assist with the Sub Committee’s but are very keen to more encourage members, particularly female, to join not only the these committees but also the Board of Directors. Please seriously consider putting yourself forward to help in the running of your Ice Rink. We really need your help.

More information on being a Board Member can be obtained from our Chairman, Tom Pendreigh. Nomination forms can be obtained from the Ice Centre office.

At a recent Board Meeting the charges for all ice sports were discussed. The income for curling last season was down and our costs, particularly for utilities, are continuing to rise. It was agreed that we increase our ice charges to compensate for the downturn in usage and the rising costs of utilities, which is around 20%. We would also note that ice charges have not been increased for 2 years.

The new curling Ice charges for the 2018-19 season will be as follows:-

Day time Ice - £10.50

Evening (from 4.40pm) - £12.00

Virtual League - £9.00

Junior Ice - £6.00

The Ice Centre membership will remain at £20.00.

We are also looking into the possibility of running a Summer Spiel, possibly in early July 2019. If you are interested in entering a rink please lodge your interest with Keith. If there is enough support we will take this forward, develop the format and work on social activities.

Finally on behalf of the Board and Staff at Inverness Ice Centre and we look forward to welcoming you all back in September. We hope the investments made in the facility improve the experience of Members and users.
