The Grand Opening for the New Capital Ice Complex which houses Schaumberg Arena and the new Wachter Arena is set for Nov. 29.

The public is invited out from 6:30pm to 7:30pm to see the new complex and participate in open ice skating.

The best part of the new complex, in my opinion, is the fact that there is skating rentals. I love to ice skate but not enough to buy my own ice skates. When places have open ice skating but no place to rent skates it is very frustrating.

But skate rentals are available at the new complex. The new complex also has, "three community rooms, a dryland training area, puck shooting area, storage spaces, concessions, a new lobby with ticket sales and skate rentals and offices for the local ice skating and hockey clubs."

At 7pm on Wednesday you can also choose to be in a large group photo as part of the opening of the new ice arena.
