DOVER-FOXCROFT – From golfing to ice skating, there’s plenty to do in Dover-Foxcroft in the summer.
In a time of social distancing, it’s tough to enjoy certain activities but it’s certainly more appealing when you can do it with some close friends.
“I tell them all we’re not gonna be on that TV there, all we want to do is come out and enjoy ourselves and have a good time,” said Cory Campbell, owner and manager at Foxcroft Golf Club.
Campbell has been around this course since he was young and has made sure to make some improvements.
“I grew up on this course,” said Campbell. “I knew what it was like years ago.”
Years ago, it did not hold functions for graduations, weddings and other gatherings.
“It isn’t just for golf. You can come out and sit back and have a glass of wine or do a little function or something of that sort,” Campbell said.
Down the road, if you enjoy the cold a little more, the Piscataquis County Ice Arena is ramping up for its reopening.
“Change is tough for people, there’s no question, but if you look at it as a positive going forward, you are willing to pivot into new ideas, it’s going to be a better process down the road,” said Matthew Spooner, director of operations at the ice arena.
Spooner said the ice rink will be upgrading its technology along with adding some new sports.
“Increase our curling activities as well as our broomball activities,” Spooner said.
Their new coronavirus precautions are set to get the right amount of people back in the facility.
“The plan for reopening, not this weekend but next weekend, you may see us ready to go,” said Spooner.
