Winter Carnival Activities at Ham Ice Arena

There is an exciting weekend in store at the Ham Arena, January 23rd thru the 25th.  In cooperation with Conway’s 250th Anniversary WINTER CARNIVAL celebration, the Ham Arena  will be host to several events dedicated to celebrating Conway’s history as a winter playground.  The Ham Arena is located at 87 West Main St. in Conway, NH.

First up, on Friday January 23rd, from 7:10-9:10pm the Ham Arena will be hosting the WOODEN STICK HOCKEY GAMES to benefit “END 68 HOURS OF HUNGER” program.  Players who want to take to the ice need to raise 25.00 dollars that will be donated to the local  “End 68 hours of Hunger” program.  This program sends quality food stuffs home with children in need, to bridge the 68 hour gap the weekend poses, to ensure they have sufficient food at home to be healthy and well nourished.  Call the rink at 447-5888 to get on the ice.  Feed your hockey hunger and feed the hungry at the same time!  A wooden stick is recommended to harken back to the old days of old time hockey but the game is about rasiing money for the less fortunate.

On Saturday January 24th,from 12:30-2:30pm the Ham Arena will host a Vintage Public Skate Session. Anyone arriving in a vintage costume will receive a dollar off their public skating admission price.  In addition the Mount Washington Valley Skating Club will present s 20 minute show at center ice  at 1:10pm.  Come on down and see the Valley’s best skaters and enjoy the ice as well!

On Sunday Janaury 25th, from 9:30-11:00am  the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club will present a curling Demo at the Ham Arena.  This unique sport was around when Conway was founded!   Come watch and what has been described as “the most intriguing sport on ICE!”

All these activities are in honor of Conway’s winter heritage.  Sports that turn cold and snow into fun for all!

See You On The ICE!
