We cleaned and flooded ,three coats up ,two coats down. In attendance where ; Bud , Peter , Biagio , Dennis , and Grant. After we had some refreshments , pizza and chips , unfortunately the Ice-Girls didn't show up ,it's has something to do with a restraining order,l would check into it , but my Lawyer said it would be a vilification of my restraining order ,lol.
So next Year we'll be only C.& F. on Sundays starting the 4th and Thursdays starting the 8th.
Thanks for all your help this year, watch for my report on the 2008 Season coming soon.

So Bud , Kurt , Jamie ,Bill , Dennis , Grant and some hockey players cleaned both rinks and the ice-guys laid down three coats . The rinks are now back in tip top shape.
Please join us Tuesday the 30th at 9 P.M. for a Clean & Flood & the Ice-Guy News Years Party .
Happy New Year's and thanks for all your help to all the Ice-Guys and their families that are going away for New Year's .
In 2009 we will be going back to just Sunday and Thursday clean and floods once the kids are back to School.
I , thought we weren't going to clean this morning ,(it was another GOOD IDEA by Bud ) , but lots of guys showed up ,like ; Bud ,Peter, Kris ,Ian , Bill, and Kurt, so with the help of Bertha we clean both rinks . But we couldn't Flood because it was snowing.
If it Snows tonight don't bother coming down at 9, unless you want to..it's getting to hard to call.
Please show up Tuesday the 30th at 9 P.M. if you can or want to, it's the last ice time in 2008 and may turn into an ICE-GUY NEW YEARS PARTY.

This is Peter (Slim ) Westergard with a comment. So thinking about helping with the ice doesn't cost you anything , but doing it does, and the reward is seeing everyone enjoying themselves and knowing you had something to do with it.
The rinks are getting allot of use and will really need repair on Sunday so please be there.
Also Last years Blog was called
"Flood ,Sweat and Beers" ,
so what should we call this blog ?
"Puns and Hoses " ,
"There's Tim ? " ,
"For Pizza Sake ",
"why is Kurt doing all the Work ? "
please forward us some ideas.
