Mystique Ice Center Open for Expanded Usage


Leitner, Jim, Telegraph - Herald (Dubuque)


Ron Breitbach appreciates the way tri-state residents have embraced Mystique Community Ice Center in the five years since it opened on Chaplain Schmitt Island.

Now, the rink's general manager hopes to create even higher usage for the facility. With quality ice slots available on a weekly basis, Breitbach believes there is more room for growth at Mystique.

"I can't say enough about the community support we've seen, from getting it built in the first place to the groups who take advantage of it on a consistent basis," Breitbach said. "We have great relationships with our user groups, and we have a very solid relationship with the Fighting Saints.

"But, the more use we can get for the facility, the more efficient we can become. That keeps our costs down and helps us keep ice rental affordable."

The facility serves as home to the Saints, youth and high school hockey, the Dubuque Figure Skating Club, local college programs and three adult hockey organizations. High school and youth hockey accounts for 70 percent of ice usage.

The figure skating club recently took over the popular learn-to- skate program. Public skating sessions typically draw up to 100 participants, and between 75 and 100 people per day walk at the facility for free.

Breitbach said the facility recently implemented its first ice rental increase since opening in the fall of 2010. In addition to ice rental, the facility includes the DB&T Lounge, a board room and a community room available for use.

"We're not looking to compete against existing ice users, but we feel there's still room to fill in some of the gaps," Breitbach said. "We're open to suggestions, and we'll provide groups with some organization to get them up and going and help them become self sufficient. We're especially looking for usage during the non- traditional (summer) season.

"It could be anything from a young adult hockey league or broomball league or a breakfast hockey league or something over the noon hour. We'd love to hear the feedback and work with people to take advantage of the facility."
