Bone chilling temperatures and a tonne of shoveling didn't keep away Craig, Andrew G., Andrew P., Ian, Jeff, Keith, Claire or John. At -17ºC and feeling more like -22ºC, the team managed to push back the edges of the rink and scrape after the busy New Year's weekend. Putting on THREE coats while warming up at the fire pit, the Valiant team finished around 10:15 pm last night.
We haven't heard from the Shinny Hockey organizers yet, but Tuesday (today) would be the first day of the kid's shinny program. Ages 7-12, boys and girls get coaching from Grant Parks every Tuesday night from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
Monday nights are important now that the program is under way, so thanks again to the team last night!!!
We plan to be there Thursday night at 8:00 pm to get the rinks ready for the weekend. Craig and Kurt will not be able to make it, but we would like to know who can make it down. Jeff will be there.
Keep the hose on the ice,
