PIC – Nampa celebrates arrival of Zamboni

Dec. 18 was a landmark day at the Nampa Complex when the community celebrated the arrival of their new 2019 Zamboni Model 446. The project commenced in 2017 and was a combined effort which included the dedicated board members and Richardson Pioneer. Everyone was instrumental in applying for the grant and obtaining donations, this hard work resulted in the arrival of the new Zamboni in July 2019. It replaced an extremely old Zamboni, which is now being used by St. Isidore Cultural Centre. The new Zamboni is working very well maintaining the Nampa Complex ice surface.
