An impressive number of youths ranging in age from under seven up to 18-year-olds are registered to play minor hockey at the Eastern Kings Sportsplex in Souris. Add those 158 players to 113 signed up for ringette and 50 more regular curlers who use the same surface and the importance of this arena is distinctly paramount.

But torrential rains last month proved the facility’s sprawling steel roof is compromised. A growing number of leaks, including one over the ice surface, has pushed the potential of a short-term fix to the urgency of replacing the roof on the structure built in 1978.
