BREWER, MAINE 04412
October 21, 2013
On September 27th, George and I purchased the Penobscot Ice Arena. We considered this many times over the last few years, but were fully aware of what kind of investment it would take to bring the facility back to what it once was, and only when we could come to an agreeable purchasing price, decided to go forth. In addition to that sizable loan, we also knew we would need additional monies for restoration. We feel it is our responsibility, however, we are seeking corporate sponsorships to help with costs, and to be able to maintain the improvements taking place.
Improvements are already in progress, such as thorough cleaning, painting, insulating, and carpentry, including an additional locker room, tiling in bathrooms, and general overall maintenance. The chiller is in working order and a Zamboni has been purchased, as have boards and glass to be put in next spring. Also, the concessions stand is in the process of being leased.
We have great pride in the Brewer community, having owned and operated Penobscot Cleaning Services for 23 years. We also have great pride in the Brewer “hockey” community, as our daughter plays on the girls' team and our grandson is in Learn to Skate George coaches and is a member of the Brewer Youth Hockey board. I mostly try to stay warm when I'm cheering for them! :) Seriously, though, this is a life long commitment for us.
There are several options available for sponsorship, keeping in mind that thousands of people utilize the rink. We are planning on booking more ice time.
Following are a list of options and prices:
4 ft. X 8 ft. Sign Requiring Artwork & Setup $550.00
4 ft. X 8 ft. Requiring Lettering ONLY $500.00
4 ft. X 4 ft. Requiring Artwork & Setup $350.00
4 ft. X 4 ft. Sign Requiring Lettering only $300.00
Full Zamboni Wrap $5000.00
Half Zamboni Wrap $2500.00
Zamboni Side Logos (per side) $1000.00
Center Ice logo (available in June 2014)
Other Ice logo (available in June 2014)
3.5 9 Sign on Boards (Available June 2014) $500.00 / $550.00
Included with all options, your logo is listed under our sponsors' section of our website.
After your initial investment, the cost for each year to maintain advertising would be half of your original contribution. For example: a 4 ft. X 8 ft. sign with lettering and artwork would be $275.00 each year thereafter. That averages out to only $22.90 per month for much exposure. The bonus is that you’re a part of a facility greatly needed in this area. There are approximately 250 children in Brewer Youth Hockey, the Brewer High School teams, Maine Freeze travel teams and another 200 plus adults in various leagues playing at Penobscot Ice Arena. Also, teams from all over the state play here.
