What was the Arena Like?
On January 29, 1982, the Hull Olympiques were leading the Québec Remparts by 3-1 midway through the second period at the Colisée. A transformer suddenly blew, and the arena was plunged into darkness. With no quick fix available, the game was postponed.

A month later, the Olympiques were back in the area and available to make up the game, but for the date picked, Feb. 22, the Colisée was not available. For whatever reason, the Pavillon de la Jeunesse and PEPS were also overlooked, and the makeup game was played at an arena called the Arpidrome in the Quebec City suburb of Charlesbourg. The Olympiques won the rematch, 10-0.

I know nothing at all about the building except that internet searches indicate it has a pool attached and frequent public skating. I'll report back next time I'm in Quebec City. Until then, if you have anything to contribute, send it to .
