-21 what a Night

Photo from top; Kurt & Ian,2 Keith,Ian & Andrew, 3 Ian,Andrew,Bud,4 Bud & Kurt.Sorry didn't get a picture of Kris. The Team cleaned and did two coats on each, so now we have 50 coats on bottom rink and 56 on the top rink.
After we drew for the Heritage Classic tickets, Bud & Keith won.
I need to ask, why are we working so hard ?, after all WE JUST WON THE CALGARY HERALD " BEST OUTDOOR SKATING RINK IN CALGARY " CONTEST.
The answer is, we won because we never quit.
And because Kris' wife Lisa noticed the Herald was having a contest and told him to get after it.

Who is this ?

These photos where in the Feb. 7th Times Colonist Newspaper on Vancouver Island.
I have some questions;
1, doesn't that look like Kurt ?
2, was he in Victoria lately ?
3,does Victoria get that much snow?
4, is there maybe a parallel universe ?
I am getting tried of saying it but, Good Job Kurt !

What a Day

Today, Captain Kurt, used his "Agent Orange" Snow blower after Bertha broke down and spend four hours cleaning the snow off the rinks today.Good job Kurt!
Tonight, Andrew,Kris,Ian,Jamie,Grant,Jeff and Bud, cleaned and added a coat to the bottom rink (46th coat )and two two coats (51st coat )to the upper rink.
We notice someone had broken the Kid's Skater Helper and kicked in the garbage can.
Which is too bad , because lots of little kids used the "Helper "
