Quakers Hockey News

Preamble....

For those of whom do not know, the Quakers hockey club has experienced a bit of hard luck over the last year. Due to inability to re-structure their lease/contract with Ice Line, the club chose to move out and look elsewhere to call their home rink. A facility was acquired and a complete overhaul was necessary to remodel and bring up to current standards.

Current Situation....
With that being said, recently funding had been withdrawn and Quakers ownership looked to acquire more backers. According to their website they have posted a "Breaking News" notice advising the following, they have acquired the funding necessary to complete the job @ Westtown rink, assumed completion is labor day and a public statement is to follow from the Quakers club shortly.

I can't say that I didn't tell you so because I did. Last week I said in the Jr Flyers post the principle funder was the problem. They always had a backup plan.

I saw similar comments posted on a facebook group. A couple people familiar with what is going on with the Quakers mentioned other parties interested in becoming part of the new rink funding project.

Has construction at the new Westtown rink started yet.  Last I saw they were looking to be up and running around labor day - that’s like 90 days from now.  They may not need to  do any work on the outside structure of the building, but there is a lot of internal walls, plumbing, electricity and installing the ice system that will need to be done, along with all of the other necessary inspections, permits, whatnot - any updates on the site?

All of the permits and licensing were approved in April. It was a hockey rink before it was a gym.
