Kurt's Thursday Report 35th Flood

Hey gang, Jamie, John, Andre, Jessie and I put down three coats tonight. The upper is looking like it could go either way still good but yellowing… that time of year again. We are planning the Ice-guys wind-up party for next Friday Feb. 28th at 7:00 PM. Let me know who can make it so I know how many party hats to buy. We will flood our usual Monday and Thursday next week. The wind up party doesn't mean we will stop flooding if weather permits we can keep making it… but the party is an excuse to get out and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done! Now 69 coats on lower and 68 on upper.

Grant Parks' report " Tonight at Shinny "

When I arrived at the ODR, the lower rink was shimmering like a perfect mirror. Not a single blemish marred its flawless surface. It almost seemed a shame to skate on it. In fact, we almost didn’t skate on it. It was -18C this evening which is our cut off for cancelling shinny. However, 12 hearty children showed up and were eager to play. So we decided to forego the cut-off rule and PLAY! That’s how we roll in Rosemont… Thanks for the great ice, Ice Guys.
