Construction was underway for the formation of the Isabella County Events (I.C.E.) Arena. Through a generous donation of property by Bob and Sue Martin, favorable pricing by local contractors, as well as insurmountable community support, the monumental venture was complete. To ensure that the day-to-day operations were managed appropriately, the CRC established a non-profit corporation by the name of Smooth Surfaces. The CRC leased the new facility to Smooth Surfaces with the agreement that Smooth Surfaces would provide effective oversight, maintain operational costs, manage debt, and turn all remaining profit, if any, over to the CRC.
