Making Fast Ice for the Missouri Mavericks

Episode 2

You know those doors that say “Authorized Personnel Only”? Well, we’re opening them. Join Flatland as we peel back the curtain, lift the manhole cover, go in the back door, and get unfiltered access to what’s behind the scenes in Kansas City.

This month, we’re at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Independence, Missouri, as the operations teams have fewer than 24 hours to change over from concert floor to hockey-ready ice before a Missouri Mavericks game. Learn what makes ice “fast” (and why the players prefer it) and just how those team logos and zone lines get under the icy layers.

Next month on “Authorized Personnel Only” | Go behind the wheel — and tires and gauges and shocks — at a local manufacturing plant as a vehicle goes down the ‘line’ and is pieced together, from nuts to bolts.

— Follow the series at #FlatlandAPO and follow all we do at FlatlandKC.
