RSVP is not necessary, but would help us to determine how many supporting folks we need to help take shots, etc. You can RSVP via email@example.com or by calling the Rink BC at 963 RINK.
Cost per participant is $5.
Friday Night Drop In Hockey
Per your request, we have added a Friday Night Drop in. Catch us the first Friday of each month (Less January 2017) from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. We will follow with an Open Skate from 7:45 pm to 9:00pm. We will try and add more after our final house team schedule out their season.
Cost per skater is $5 and Goalies are free. We will be limiting goalies to four.
We are pleased to announce that our temporary number is now gone and we have our permanent number in place! You can catch the team at the Rink BC via 269-963-RINK!
I can not tell you how excited I was to be able to obtain a number with the word Rink in it. Call me silly but I literally clapped by hands like a two year old when she said it was available.
Hope to talk with you all soon!

A Special Thank you to AIM Asphalt
We wanted to extend a very special thank you to AIM Asphalt. AIM was contracted to fill the pot holes in our parking lot as well as seal coat and repaint the parking lines. AIM went above and beyond the contracted job to provide us with brand new asphalt down the middle of our parking lot. We can not wait until it is seal coated and repainted this week.
If you need Asphalt Repair or seal coating, please call AIM. The team there are phenomenal!!!

Over the next week you should expect additional changes to the look and feel of The Rink BC. We look forward to your feedback.
We are so excited to welcome you to the new website for the new RINK BC located at 75 Houston in Battle Creek, MI. Together with several community organizations, sponsors, Leagues and Associations we are pleased to welcome you "Back to the Rink". Over the next few months, we invite you to join us downtown to witness the changes this facility will be walking through. It all starts this weekend as we breakout the chain saws and update the landscaping out front. Regardless of the changes the building may be walking through over the next six months, there are two things that will not be changing about this Rink - the great ice you are accustomed to and the awesome people you share the ice with.
