In just two months, the Old Ralph Englestad Arena site will be cleared, and a new indoor practice facility will take its place. Crews have been working since July tearing down the former home of University of North Dakota hockey.

In just two months, the Old Ralph Englestad Arena site will be cleared, and a new indoor practice facility will take its place. Crews have been working since July tearing down the former home of University of North Dakota hockey.

Officials with Berger Enterprises, which is the company in charge of the demolition, say they're on schedule and everything should be cleared by fall. Some longtime UND fans, and just curious passerby, have been out to the site every day watching the building tumble down piece by piece. Berger Enterprises officials say they're recycling what they can from the Old Ralph. They still have about 300 stadium seats available for purchase.

Officials say the company will soon have an auction for paintings taken from the building. For more information, call (701) 594-3385.
