BCH affiliate makes investment in Maryland indoor ice skating rink

Piney Ice, LLC (“Piney Orchard” or the “Company”), an affiliate of Blackstreet Capital Holdings, LLC (“BCH”) and Bob Weiss, operator of the Rockville Ice Rink, has acquired substantially all of the assets of the Piney Orchard Ice Arena. Piney Orchard, located in Odenton, MD, is a year-round indoor ice arena that is home to numerous youth hockey and figure skating clubs and was previously the practice facility for the NHL’s Washington Capitals. BCH is led by Murry Gunty, Chief Executive Officer, and Lawrence Berger, Chief Investment Officer.

“Our partnership with BCH will enable Piney Orchard to upgrade the facility and continue to reliably serve the growing hockey and figure skating communities of the Washington, DC metro area,” said Bob Weiss. “With BCH’s commitment, we look forward to turning Piney Orchard into one of the leading ice rinks in the USA. We plan to expand the ice hockey programs that are offered for all ages, build deeper relationships with local high schools and build an improved cornerstone for our community where families can safely spend time and have fun together.” Mr. Weiss will assume management of the Piney Orchard ice rink.

“We’re excited to facilitate the growth of ice skating sports in this region,” said Murry Gunty, CEO of BCH. “Bob Weiss and his family run the three-sheet Rockville ice arena, the premier ice rink in the Washington, DC area, and Team Maryland. Team Maryland is one of the best hockey programs in the country, so we are thrilled to begin our partnership with them. This marks our second hockey rink investment and we look forward to expanding our interests in this industry.”
