BLu McGrath grew up skating on frozen-over ponds and playing hockey on outdoor rinks in Antigo, a town in north central Wisconsin.It's an experience that he wants to help bring to the North Platte area. McGrath, who has 25 years' experience in rink management in Colorado and Wyoming, is the president of NPIce Inc., and has the goal of putting a seasonal rink in Centennial Park with a long-range plan to establish an indoor ice facility in the city. McGrath and his partner in the project, Tyler Sexson — a self-described backyard rink enthusiast, created a Facebook page and launched a campaign goal for the rink this month.
