Why would we need a bigger arena for ice hockey when we rarely fill the one we have? Half-filled arenas have absolutely no atmosphere and it would be like watching the MK Dons week in week out.

I think we're good where we are for the time being.

I may have this completely wrong, but when all the meetings were taking place pre and post refurb were not PI tenants with a long lease? I honestly thought Applegate (sp) owned all the land and buildings and as such were the landlord's.

I am sure some kind soul on here will 'put me right'.

I didn't think PI had ever actually owned the rink. Even back in the 90s when they re-opened in 1998 it was still owned by First Leisure and leased to PI wasn't it?

Its always been leased as far as I am aware. I do remember hearing something that PI had to agree a new lease after the refit but I cant remember where I heard that.
