Leaders with Bend Park and Rec continue to explore the possibility of bringing a full sized ice rink to Bend.  The large facility would be located on the property just purchased by the Parks District at the old Mount Bachelor Park and Ride property. A spokesman with a non-profit group called "Bend Ice" says the local community could support it, and it would serve many different interests. "That community ice rink would be for open skate or public skating for the community that use would also include adult and kids hockey leagues and learn to skate programs and figure skating programs and then a small portion of the use would be for non-skating uses like curling." Blaise Carcciola with Bend Ice says they've studied several similar communities throughout the northwest and have found that even smaller towns can support a full sized rink.  It would cost an estimated 700,000 to $1.1 million. The non-profit group would need to raise about $300,000 by next March to get the rink started.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
