Dedicated Ice Initiative

The Long Island Dedicated Ice Inititive is a capital campaign to raise funds so that we can be in our own leased facility by early 2020. Please see how you can be a part of this initiative from the start. Whether you are an LICC member, love the sport of curling, or just a proud supporter of Long Island, the Dedicated Ice Initative's main goal is for the betterment of the Long Island community. Our fundraising sources will come from members donations, corporate sponsorships, and public support. 
 

Long-Term Vision

Building
  • Owned by the club
  • Large enough to expand
  • Financially self-sustaining 

Curling
  • Championship curling ice (2 sheets to start, 4+ sheets long term)
  • Mechanical equipment 

Inviting warm room area with:
  • Kitchen/bar area, locker rooms & bathrooms
  • Recreational/social/viewing area 
 

The “Warehouse” Model

Among the first to adopt the leased warehouse space concept was the Columbus Curling Club (OH). Several other clubs, including Evergreen Curling Club (OR) and Fort Wayne Curling Club (IN), have recently been successful utilizing this model as well. Our plan is to follow this model by:
  • Finding suitable vacant space (5-10 year lease)
  • Renovate and update the space for code compliance and curling needs
  • Utilize portable equipment (ice mats, etc.) to ease our move/expansion in future
  • Make it the best we can (some sacrifices from the long-term vision will need to be made)

This option provides a great improvement from the arena model, and at a lower cost as compared to the long-term vision/larger facility. A leased warehouse space can support a club eternally, though the club lacks full control, and may not reach our long-term vision in a leased space.
 

Budget Estimate

The initial estimate is based on a phased approach, starting with 2 sheets (75-100 members per sheet), used equipment, in a leased building, with no kitchen unless economically feasible.
  • Chillers, dehumidifier, insulation, pad installed: $120,000
  • Rocks and curling equipment: $17,500
  • Engineering and permits: $10,000
  • Ice making supplies: $12,500
  • General supplies: $5,000
  • Furniture, bar and locker room: $20,000
  • Build out: $90,000
  • Contingency: $35,000
  • Rent and other fees during construction: $90,000
  • TOTAL: $400,000
