Thanks for all the help tonight!

Bud, Jamie, Kris, Grant, Keith, Bill, Biagio, Elliot, and Kurt who were down to throw some H2O on the ground. We did one heavy coat, followed by a light coat on the lower rink. The upper sheet got 3 light to medium coats. During the freezing process, we discussed the strategy to get the ice in skating form.

So, this week if we can get as many "Iceguys" down as possible to help it would be really give us a head start. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday we are going to be down at 8:00 PM to flood.

FRIDAY !!!FLOOD FEST 2008 is on. This is the night we start at 7:00 PM and try to put as many coats on as we can. Last year, (Bud reminded us), We put on 7 coats, both sheets. We had 7 "Iceguys" doing shift work on Nov. 30th. The more "Iceguys" we have this year the more coats we can put on.

We will have food available to keep the energy up that will go into the early hours of Saturday morning. During the next few days, please let us know if you can make it Friday for the FEST so we can make sure we have enough food.

See you at 8 PM every night this week!!

P.S. Congrats to Stamps for the winning the Grey Cup.
