Any school have new buildings opening or have their programs switching to different arenas (for off-campus arenas) this upcoming season??

Is that the building where a bunch of bricks fell from the facade this past spring?

The Glens Falls CC will be a busy place if this is true The Adirondack Thunder of the ECHL is replacing the Adirondack flames of the AHL. I believe local high schools also use the rink. Add the occasional concert and the weekends should be booked. Its a great arena I have been going their ever since the Adirondack Red Wings played there; but considering the size and the amount of fans that attend their games it will look pretty empty. Plattsburgh played Skidmore there two years ago and I would say 90% of the fans their were from the burgh.:eek:

Forgive my stupid, but why would the school go to Glens Falls instead of the rink around the corner?

Possibly its a temp move for renovations. Potsdam played in Massena two years ago while maxey was being upgraded. I have checked online and can not find anything indicating a move.
