To All Port Huron Hockey Families,

This Monday, October 12th at 7:00pm the Port Huron City Council will receive the recommendation from the McMorran Authority supporting the sale of the Pavilion to SC4 for $1.00.  


We need to show the Port Huron City Council that we are standing our ground in the disapproval of SC4 obtaining ownership of the pavilion. We ask that all of our players, coaches, and families join Local Business Leaders and  the Community Support Group for keeping the Pavilion as an ice rink at the Port Huron City Council Meeting this Monday. 


Please see the message sent on Thursday from Scott Worden to Business Leaders and the Community Support Group for keeping the Pavilion an ice rink. 


An update …



The 4 members of the McMorran Authority  had a monthly meeting this morning .  At this meeting a consultant Jason Thompson of Brailsford & Dunlavey  ( this was the first time ,we- PHMHA, heard of him)   did a power point presentation “RE-USE of the McMorran Pavilion.” 


That title speaks for itself….


  As the presentation started….He shared that “it is an update to the master plan from 2 years ago ….”  


  The presentation evaluation..


Surprisingly had minimal information regarding  PHMHA…


It had  NO information regarding  KIDS  use;  figure skating; ice hockey; high school hockey;  adult recreation hockey… Nothing  SILVER STICK INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT?????  Nothing regarding Hotel impact… Nothing local impact on City businesses….


 The presentation had a highlight page… SC4 deal benefit  that included… McMorran keeping the parking lot…?     That surprised us all……and brought to light that the McMorran Authority and SC4 have been in continuing ongoing negotiations since the submitted  proposal… 60 days ago…  changing and discussing.. then included it in the “Independent Consultant’s Evaluation”



I asked Jason the independent consultant “ Did you ever contact PHMHA or Business Owner Group to discuss; evaluate; inquire about  anything regarding their information to evaluate their  intentions?… options?   he said “NO”.     


 So you all know…. McMorran Authority…. 60 days ago.. they heard both presentations SC4 and PHMHA…


Since PHMHA- Business Owner  presentation to  keep it an Ice rink….  Neither the  McMorran Authority… nor any consultant … involved/ communicated/ or discussed anything with Port Huron Minor Hockey Association or Business Owners Support Group… regarding proposal, options, negotiations or concerns…. 


Always “McMorran Authority is doing due diligence and having both proposals evaluated by independent consultant”



However….McMorran Authority has had ongoing communication /discussions/ negotiations with SC4… even to the extent changing the proposal….the $1 for Pavilion and parking lot…



The McMorran Authority was only  4 people: Jack Belyea; Mark Neal, Bob Eppley and Karissa Kramer.  




I personally feel that the 100’s of Business Owners, Professionals, and Families like all of you in our community are the best source  to  evaluate …… to place value importance of having the McMorran Jr  Ice rink for our Kids…character development… community involvement , economic  positive impact, tourism positive impact,   amenity of City of Port Huron and surrounding area…   


it is important for the community to have input….   There are a lot of VERY BRIGHT people in this email list.. and ALL of us have a vested interest to have this decision regarding McMorran JR ARENA  NOT be decided until we have a public  informational forum… town hall style… so that the public  and businesses  can have a chance to hear facts… and details of all Options and ask questions….


MORE IMPORTANTLY  WHY EVEN THINK of getting rid of it when it operates positively financially and has such an established track record for Kids youth hockey and ice skating?

McMorran Pavilion Update

Dear Fellow Hockey Families,

We would like to fill you in on the current happenings with the Pavilion. Last Wednesday PHMHA presented to the McMorran Authority our business plan for taking on ownership of the Pavilion. Our business plan is very solid and will work if the city chooses not to continue with ownership of the facility. Over the past few months we have gained overwhelming community support and this support only continues to grow daily. On Wednesday, August 19th SC4 will present to the McMorran Authority their business plan for taking over the pavilion and turning the building we have always known as the "Jr. Arena" into their gymnasium. I encourage each and every one of you, your friends, family members and every one that you know who resides in the Blue Water Area to reach out to the McMorran Authority Members, SC4 College Trustees, and the Port Huron City Council and to share your thoughts and what this will mean to our community if SC4 were to take ownership of the Pavilion. Decisions madeby the groups listed below will be the result of public favor or opposition.
