This article was published in What's Up Muskoka in February, 2009. ---------------------- Bracebridge arena celebrates 60 years By Andrew Hoshkiw It's been 60 years since the Bracebridge Memorial Arena celebrated its opening with a faceoff, but this community hub continues to hold a special place in the lives of many south Muskoka residents. In honour of the arena's 60th anniversary, a variety of activities were held there on Sunday, Feb. 1, including a free public skate with music and an on-ice trivia contest, free refreshments and cake and a formal ceremony highlighting the history and stories from the last six decades. For some, it may be the only arena in Bracebridge they've come to know, but in actual fact, it is the town's fifth arena. The first covered rink was built by John Dunn in the area where Northern Buildall is located. The second was built by the same man near the Huntsville Bridge on Taylor Road. It had posts down the middle, which made it awkward, so when hockey became popular in the 1920s he rebuilt it on the same spot. Ace Bailey, who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, learned to play in that rink, which was called the Ice Palace. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by fire in the late 1930s. A new rink was built where the existing rink is currently located, but it too succumbed to fire in 1943. The current arena was built in the same place six years later. At that time Bracebridge had a population of about 2,700. "The hockey teams played in Port Carling in that interval time," says local historian Ken Veitch. "The cost of the new rink was $280,000." The arena was built to handle 1,500 sitting spectators and 1,000 standing. There are eight miles of pipes under the floor for fusing. Jack Thompson was in charge of the concrete and Nelson Goltz oversaw the construction. "A lot of the work was done by volunteer labour, by people returning from the war," says Veitch. "It was built as a memorial for the 45 men from the surrounding area who lost their lives in World War Two." The arena officially opened on Feb. 1, 1949 with a faceoff marking the beginning of what has been a rich and exciting history. "Stuart Reid faced Bus Brazier and the referee was Frank Suter," remembers Veitch. "Clarence Kirkness playing for the home team scored the first goal and the game was Bracebridge players against a list of all-stars from across Muskoka." Bracebridge resident Ken Hammell remembers the day when the arena first opened. "I played hockey in the first game in that arena," he says. "It was a difficult start, a lot of us had not had skates on for three or four years. We practised and played our games at Port Carling." There were also various minor hockey games played at the opening, a figure skating presentation from the Toronto Granite Club and an appearance by Cyclone Taylor of the NHL. Nancy Cox-Godfrey, president of the Bracebridge Figure Skating Club, also has many fond memories of the arena from over the years. "Bracebridge was one of the first synchro skating clubs in Canada, forming in 1978," she says, adding that only 15 other clubs existed at the time. "Harold Sher of Oakville was our first synchro coach who ran a successful team club here for 20 years taking our teams to many northern Ontario championships and consolation round events at the nationals." Prominent skaters who got their start at the club and went on to compete nationally and internationally include Tamiko Uyeda, Lindsay Wood, Sandy Kelly and Miranda Hall. The latter took a silver medal at the World Synchronized Skating Championships in 1999. Among the list of notables is Muriel Gibbs who devoted almost 60 years to the Bracebridge Skating Club, producing many fine skaters in the process. She was also the longest serving president of the club, serving as president from 1948 to 1970. In addition to being the home rink for many top figure skaters, the arena has hosted several skating carnivals over the years. "A season's worth of lessons and learning were performed to the community at the ice review," Cox-Godfrey says. "Our club has never missed a year since 1949 in producing a carnival and we have had many big-name skaters perform as headliners." In addition to Brian Orser and Jeffrey Buttle, the club has hosted Tracey Wainman, Jennifer Robinson, Tracy Wilson, Rob McCall, Barbara Wagner, Robert Paul as well as other international skating champions. "Olympic and world title skaters have all skated in Bracebridge carnivals mainly because of our connections with top ranked skating schools and coaches," Cox- Godfrey says. Notable hockey players who got their start at this arena include Roger Crozier, who went on to play 14 seasons in the NHL as a goaltender for the Detroit Red Wings, Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals. Kris King, who also played 14 NHL seasons with the Detroit Red Wing
