Schedules and rosters will be posted in the near future.

  • After Wishbones: What's Next?

    About a month ago, we wrote about the possibility of having to close our doors at Wishbones if we couldn’t find a new home. That letter received a tremendous response online, with many people wondering what happens after we close up at Wishbones. We do have some potentially good news about that.
  • Have Fun, Get a New Fun Center

    Columbus deserves better, and has been waiting long enough for a family fun center. We have been working hard for the past fifteen years to put our business in a position to relocate inside city limits. With time running out on our chances to do so, as our current location continues to deteriorate putting us at risk of losing a home to operate out of, we figured we would try something a little unique.

  • Help Save the Rink!

    Last week we wrote about the possibility that this could be the last year that Columbus has a roller skating rink. We want to reassure you that we have every intent of finding a new home so that we can keep hosting fun events in Columbus for many years to come. Here are more details on how you can help, and what you get if we're successful in our efforts.

  • Many Ways to Help

    Last week, we introduced everyone to our upcoming efforts to build a new family fun center and sports complex inside city limits. Now that we've let you in our plans, we'd like to provide additional information for the many different ways you can help us make this happen.

  • More Than Just a Sports Complex

    You've heard us spend a lot of time talking about our indoor sports leagues. And, while we're limited to just three options at the moment, we can promise that there will be many times more options down the road on both the sports and entertainment side.

  • New Facility Update

    It's been a few weeks since we last updated everyone on our progress toward a new facility. With the end of the year just around the corner, I thought this would be a good opportunity to provide a little wrap up on our progress for the year.

  • New Fun Center: What's Included?

    Curious as to what we'll be offering at our new facility? If you coach a local youth or adult sports team, have a child participating in local sports programs, or are just looking for an all around fun place to go, you'll want to see this!

  • Special Message to Columbus Area Parents

    You may have seen our latest update just a few days ago about our efforts to move into town. Things do appear to be heading in the right direction, with plenty of planning and design work to complete over these next few months. There's still a lot of work to do, and we do still need lots of support.

  • Support Our Efforts for a New Facility

    We spend a lot of time talking about all of the different things we offer at our facility, and we certainly hope that you enjoy your time with us. Today, we wanted to take a moment to reach out to everyone with an update on our progress on finding a new home for our fun center and indoor sports complex.
  • Unlimited Fun at the Event Center

    Did you know that you can have an immediate impact on our efforts for a new facility? Each family in the Columbus area has an opportunity to help us raise the funds for a brand new family fun center and sports complex, and with your help, we'll be moving next year! Here's a fun way you can help and save big money at the same time!

  • Want a New Rink? Here's Your Chance!

    Want a new family fun center and sports complex in Columbus? Here's your chance! As many of you know, we have been working toward a new facility for several years. Most recently, we made an offer for the former YMCA building, which would have been a great location for what we have been wanting to bring to town for some time. With that option no longer on the table, we have only one choice a new facility!

  • Wishbones: Our Final Year

    This will either be a year of great excitement and anticipation, or it'll be one of sadness and disappointment for us at Columbus Event Center. As we first mentioned about this time last year, we are on our final days at the Wishbones facility. In fact, by this time next year we should be closing our doors at Wishbones for good.

  • Wishbones: The Final Years

    Ten years ago my wife and I purchased Columbus Hockey & Skate Center, as it was called back then, to keep roller skating and family fun here in Columbus. Our goal since that moment has always been to relocate inside city limits, and to build something nice for our community. And so, for the last ten years, we've dedicated a lot of time and effort into making this happen.
