ImOne Ice Arena damage

The Aug. 10, 2020, derecho that hit Eastern Iowa severely damaged ImOn Ice Arena and shut down all arena operations for the fall.  

The good news is:

  • Our stones and equipment were not damaged and are ready to use (with some dusting off).
  • The NHL (Roughrider’s) rink is expected to be ready for the 2021 National Championships.
  • The “Oly” (our curling) rink may be repaired in time for us to curl this spring, and it will have upgrades.

 

Curling during COVID-19

USA Curling National Championships
The combination of facility damages and ongoing challenges of the current pandemic have resulted in USA Curling's decision to relocate the 2021 Men’s and Women’s National Championships from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
 
We are all very disappointed, but the health and safety of athletes, coaches, staff, volunteers, and fans are paramount.
We cannot thank our CRC members enough for being ready and eager to make this extraordinary opportunity happen in Cedar Rapids. We also are deeply grateful to the City of Cedar Rapids, VenueWorks, ImOn Ice, and Erik Hudson for their efforts in the face of one huge problem after another.
 
We all greatly miss throwing stones with each other and look forward to the day we can safely do so again.
 

 

Cedar Rapids Curling leagues and other events

Cedar Rapids Curling and the ImOn Ice will be making same science-based decisions to get us back together “throwing stone” this spring, when our home ice is back and better than ever. When we return to the ice, we will review and, if needed, update the safety plan we had ready for the fall.
