Merritt’s Zamboni finds a new garage in Tulameen

City of Merritt donates their Zamboni to the outdoor rink in Tulameen, BC.

The City of Merritt donated this Zamboni to the outdoor rink in Tulameen

Tulameen, BC – The Tulameen Community Club wants to thank the City of Merritt for donating their Zamboni to the outdoor rink in Tulameen, BC.   The Tulameen Community Club maintains the rink in this small recreation-focussed town just outside of Princeton and their very own ‘new to them’ Zamboni will help make this task a breeze!

Tulameen has a full NHL sized outdoor arena just behind its firehall, complete with hockey nets. Tulameen is part of the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen, but their outdoor rink is operated 100 per cent by dedicated volunteers who tirelessly keep the ice useable, weather permitting.  They have relied on donations to operate and maintain a Zamboni that was borrowed, (up until now), from the Princeton arena.

Fully lit, this outdoor rink is enjoyed day and night.  And it is about to get even better. Tulameen is in the middle of a project called Raise The Roof. This project will see the construction of a roof over the existing outdoor arena, lengthening the user time on the ice surface by protecting it from the elements, and making the volunteer icemen’s job much easier!

The Tulameen Community Club would like to share our gratitude once again with the City of Merritt for the generous donation of their Zamboni to our outdoor rink facility.

Who knows….?? Once we have the roof complete, perhaps we can invite the Merritt teams to our new ‘barn’ to show off our new Zamboni.

Wouldn’t that be something!

Again, City Council and the City of Merritt, The Tulameen Community Club wishes to send a giant THANK YOU for your generosity!
