The Yankton Area Ice Arena is in need! – Please consider donating to your local ice rink!! The aging ice compressor needs to be replaced. The A/C compressor is roughly 40 years old - it has been patched, repaired, and band-aided along. We are at a point where it’s costing more to keep it up and running than to get a properly sized ice compressor. The same story goes for the Zamboni. It is a 1995, typical life span is 10-20 years. Parts are starting to fail regularly.
