We where mentioned in the Ward 7 News awhile ago
Ward 7 News: The Rosemont ice guys Article Date: 3/7/2013 In the winter of 2011 the outdoor ice rinks in Rosemont were voted as the Best Outdoor Skating Rink by readers of The Calgary Herald. The two Rosemont ice rinks are located in Confederation Park and have been around since 1966. There have been several volunteers over the years that have maintained the ice on these rinks, and since 2008 the Rosemont Ice Guys have been recording their adventures in maintaining the rinks on their very own blog. The blog is how they keep track of how many coats of ice each rink has, how their snow clearing equipment (affectionately known as Bertha and Bruno) is holding up, and how the local Shinny teams are doing.
