Yeah, I get that rinks aren't making money hand over fist and there's not a lot of money, but these days it's so easy and not at all expensive to have a simple website that works and provides basic information. It doesn't have to be fancy. It doesn't have to provide all kinds of content. Just text that is correct and up-to-date.
It goes beyond a lack of business savvy to the point of being a stubborn refusal to heed basic rules of common sense.
Yes, it's a rink and people are forced to somehow find a way to use it no matter how inconvenient, but jeez, you'd think that the owners would prefer to sell MORE ice time and attract MORE customers. I also get that it's institutional business (school programs, etc.) that is the real cash cow, and individual rec players are small time, but seriously, rink owners and hockey directors... get it together!! You could be doing so much more, with probably less effort!
