In June 2016 Jim Ulrich, as the sole owner and president, formed Sk8 47 Skating & Fun Center, LLC. The rink property was leased shortly thereafter which allowed operation of the property as a roller skating rink to continue.
Countless hours were spent by Jim, his family and volunteers to thoroughly clean, paint and perform urgently needed repairs before Sk8 47 rink operations officially began on July 1, 2016. These efforts continue to keep the rink in tip-top condition. Jim has added some new features, such as WiFi and an improved sound system. Much of this was only made possible by the generous volunteers that came to help Jim in this effort.
On February 22, 2018, Jim finalized the full purchase of the rink and became the new property owner.
