The Big Switch: A Timelapse from Raleigh’s RBC Center

Ice is removed only twice a year at Raleigh’s RBC Center — for the Circus and at the end of the hockey season. All other events that occur during hockey season, including monster truck rallies, take place on top of the ice, which is protected by thick layers of fiberglass and, in some cases, plywood. This timelapse, produced by CPJ senior Galen Clarke, shows us just how much manpower goes into making the switch from basketball to hockey.
