Monday Night and WARM...

 Weather is looking very warm this week so nice to have another night of H20.

Great work to get another flood in by the Monday Shift; Austin, Bill, Craig, Kris and the other Chris, Jamie, John, Peter and Kurt.

We did two light coats again tonight,

Temperature -4ºC

On the hose is Austin doing a super flood. And, I know, hard to believe it... That is Mr. Olsen on the second lead hand a rare site to behold. Kidding of course. Way to go team.

Lets plan for Thursday and see what the weather does.

The morning after. Craig took this shot this morning Looks really good.

Hope we can salvage the ice after this heatwave and thirst that the public have for skating. Might get a bit abused over the next week.

A girl, Madeline showed up to skate for her first time this year. She is 8 years old on skates and at the head of the hose. Very cool.


We confirmed Dec. 11th for the Annual Flood Festival. 6:00 pm. We hope that the weather will cooperate and be cold enough for us to flood the night away. 


See you all Friday night, tomorrow at 8 pm. Weather looks good for us.
