Sports: Island needs its own sportsplex

We are a committee forming to try and bring a sportsplex to Whidbey Island. This sportsplex would hold an ice surface for ice hockey and figure skating, with two indoor soccer fields.

We believe that this would be great for the youth of Island County. The closest ice rink is in Bellingham and there are many people who travel up there from the island already. We are looking for some feedback from the community to see if this is something the community would like to see.

If you would like to respond or help out in anyway with the committee please e-mail me at cjtruel
