We're Back on the Ice at the PCIA, but there are some things you need to know...
We've got all new Covid-19 Protocols which need to be followed to enable a safer environment for our Participants, Staff, and Spectators. We're working hard to increase the amount of activities at the PCIA, while not softening our diligence toward the Coronavirus. Although some procedures had to change, many were actually improved (by necessity) directly related to the onset of Covid-19. Together, with Your Help, we will continue to provide a venue which will be utilized by many.
What you need to know:
...Can all be found on our "Reopen 2020" webpage: http://www.thepcia.com/reopen-2020.html
There you will find our current Covid-19 Protocols as well as a link to our Client Portal in which you should Register as a Client of the PCIA. Whether you are an on-ice participant or a spectator, by Registering as a Client you greatly speed up the process of entering the facility, you help aid in the readiness and quickness of our contact tracing protocols, and you will benefit from possible, future announcements.
I will guarantee that our Covid-19 Protocols will change as the need arises. That's my 100% Guarantee! This season will be a season of Change & Flexibility; Disappointment & Small Victories. We need to expect short closures. We need to understand when opening is the "Right Thing" and when being closed is the "Only Answer." These decisions won't be made hastily, but they will be made with the best of intentions using the best information available at the time.
The Ultimate Goal:
We are working to provide the best quality ice while providing the safest possible environment for the on-ice activities we all love. We appreciate your assistance in keeping the PCIA open!
So "They" said we couldn't hold activities in the building...So we came up with a plan to utilize the outside of the building! Now we nearing the point where we can operate within the Arena, but first on the concrete rink surface, not on ice. What types of activities would you like to see during the month of July?
Family Game Night: Ping Pong, Corn Hole, Badminton, other games of skill & chance?
Broomball on the Concrete?
What else do you have for ideas? Keep in mind there are a lot of "new normals" we'll need to adhere to including maximum participants allowed & social distancing of 6'.
We also will have a new "entry/event registration" process to facilitate a safer environment for our staff and you, the participants. Today, you should be signing up to become a Client of the PCIA by clicking this link http://www.thepcia.com/reopen-2020.html and following the directions on our website. You will be directed to our PCIA portal which will be your resource for all events occurring at the PCIA. Once you've registered (you and your family members) you will need to click on and accept our new digital waiver.
