demolition of the old ralph englestad arena should be completed in the next week or two.   Work on razing the Ralph began in late july.  Craig Swenson of u-n-d facilities says the walls are down and work on removing the old concrete bowl continues.   The cost to demolish the building was pegged at around 800-thousand dollars.   the scrap value of materials was estimated at about a-quarter million.   when the building is removed work crews won’t bother to fill the vacant hole left behind.    excavation is needed for the  19-point-five million dollar u-n-d indoor practice facility that will be constructed on the site.
