Future Developments
The summer of 2008 will see the Centre re-painted, and a few private suites added. The capacity of the building will also apparently be raised, but I don't have details on how this will be accomplished.

How To Get There

From Rte. 138 Eastbound: When 138 turns north at boul. LaSalle, continue straight through on LaSalle instead of turning left. Make a right on rue Père-Arnaud. Make a left on Michel-Hémon. The arena will be on your left.

Local Rivals
Baie-Comeau is isolated a long way from the rest of the league, but the team has made up for it by being famously pugilistic. The team's two most "local" teams are Rimouski and Chicoutimi, and the Remparts are considered rivals as well, with the four teams now making up a division for the 2008-09 season.
