SIOUX FALLS ICE… Recreational skaters and adult and youth hockey players in the Sioux Falls area will soon have access to more ice.
Ice Sports Association broke ground on the SCHEELS IcePlex, a year-round, three-sheet indoor community ice facility that should open by next September.
Ice time is hard to come by now because the only permanent indoor rink is at Minnehaha Ice and Recreation Center.
The $8 million to $8.5 million building is going up at the Sanford Sports Complex.
It will include three NHL regulation-sized sheets of ice, lockers and dressing rooms, off-ice training facilities, a heated reception/lobby area with views of the rinks, bleacher seating, concessions, restrooms, office spaces, a community room and paved parking.
Fundraising started in 2011, and more than $6.5 million has been raised. More than $3.5 million came from private sources, $1.5 million from the Chamber Community Appeals campaign and $1.5 million from the city of Sioux Falls. Sanford Health donated the land.
SIOUX FALLS TOURNAMENTS… Sioux Falls is a candidate to host NCAA Division II finals in five sports from 2015-18.
South Dakota's largest city is among the final few being considered for men's and women's basketball, volleyball, wrestling, and men's and women's outdoor track and field in any and all of the four years based on bids submitted by the Sioux Falls Sports Authority.
The NCAA will announce the winning sites Dec. 11.
The recently opened Sanford Pentagon, the under-construction Denny Sanford Premier Center and the University of Sioux Falls track complex are among sites in Sioux Falls that could host events.
HOCKEY PLAYERS HUNT… Some former pro hockey players are coming to South Dakota for an annual celebrity pheasant hunt.

Celebrities taking part this year include Shjon Podein, Guy Gosselin, Dave Jensen, Bryan Erickson, Lou Vairo and John Taft.
