Ritter Arena

The Frank Ritter Ice Arena was converted into a large study, dining, and socializing area: tall drapery is used to section off different “rooms” on the rink floor—a lounge/dining area, stage, large study space, and gaming area. COVID-19 alert levels will determine seating capacity in the different spaces.
