Sioux Falls Regional -- Yes!

Recommended Posts

It is a very nice facility. If I remember right it was built similar to one of the NHL rinks in the region just on a smaller scale. It has great hockey sightlines.

When they were building this facility ("The Denny"), the facility planners actually spent quite a bit of time up at The Ralph to gather inspiration. I agree with Wildfan...the sightlines are great throughout the arena! The Denny & Sioux Falls has successfully hosted other NCAA tourneys (basketball). Fingers crossed UND gets to host the West Regional here in my backyard! The preparty before the official preparty at my place! ;)

With Sioux Falls putting in a bid. Think if Bismarck let that guy build that new arena to replace the Civic Center, then there would be a possibility to have an other regional in the state.

I can already imagine the electric atmosphere in there for a regional, that looks like a really nice arena.

It would be pretty great having the regionals in Sioux Falls followed by the Frozen Four in St Paul!

Very surprised an arena built in 2014 doesn't have widescreen video boards especially being less than an hour from Daktronics headquarters.

I just really looked at the ice in The Denny. (Picture above.) 

About the only space without an advertisement on it is the goalie crease. The NCAA will need a lot of whitewash there.

Not a fan of the Siouxfalls regional. Would much rather see it in Fargo. 

Not enough seats for UND fans at Scheels.

... and they are not going to award it to Fargo every year.

Mrs. Boogieman and I have been to a couple of concerts at The Denny as we are big concert goers.  Impressive facility.  Plenty of lodging within a few blocks, and connected to the center much like the Alerus/Canad situation.  Sioux Falls is a pretty cool city to spend a weekend in.  Downtown has a lot going for it!

Those advertisements bring in $400,000 total or $50,000 each that's not including the main center ice one. I'm going by what Colorado College I want to say PR guy said how much on ice adds cost.

UND needs to get one in the Ralph.
