Six guys are running the club and getting what they intended out of it. What percentage profit, who knows, it must be worthwhile though, otherwise why bother. They only visit once or twice a year and whilst Todd is a “friend” to Steve l very much doubt that translates across the other successful businessman throwing money down the throat of the Zamboni and not getting anything in return, thats an expensive way to watch EIHL hockey.
My point being all will be good until the day that balance tips, when the price of success becomes too great, when losses increase & the inevitable attendance levels drop, then like all good business owners, they’ll walk away leaving a trail of unhappiness.
If it ever got to the stage where we needed more seating ( I appreciate that’s a way off as we rarely sell out) is there an option of a lot more seating at the viola? Or would we be looking at moving location?
Don't get me wrong we generally get very good crowds. As you'd expect with the success we've had in the past 5 years. I remember Steve King saying though that we would only look at more seats/moving location if our capacity of 3,000 ish was becoming a problem. I went to most games last season and apart from the big games blocks 13/14 were pretty empty. I appreciate the Devils score down the other end for two periods but still.
