MBA is building a rink (rumor has it). Hendersonville and Murefesboro both have plan to have rinks built by the end of 2012. Hockey here is growing, and people will realize the business opportunity soon enough.
That's great and all, but what about northern TN?

Clarksville has 115k people alone, not even including Hopkinsville, Oak Grove and Ft. Campbell (With them the number is closer to 200k...). And about only 1% of those people are willing to drive down to Nashville to skate or play hockey, but a huge, huge % more would want to skate.

An ice rink here would bring a huge amount of business.

Let me rephrase. An ice rink in the GOOD part of town. If we had one in the bad part of Clarksville, it'll sink.
