It’s in the can. That’s what user groups based at Panorama Recreation Centre in North Saanich will soon be saying about their items in storage.
Two new sea cans, modified by Central Saanich’s Van Isle Containers to be able to store hockey, lacrosse and skating gear (and more) have been moved into place in between Panorama’s two arenas. Facilities and Operations Manager John Goodwin says the containers replace a smaller one and will provide user groups more space to store their equipment. Currently, a lot of gear is stored under the bleachers — a situation that will change as Panorama undertakes a major arena floor improvement project this year.
The sea cans cost $24,6004 of the $100,000 won by Panorama in the 2015 Kraft Hockeyville contest.
The Peninsula Recreation Commission will decide on further use of the rest of the money this year.
