 Good Crew Tonight...
Thanks to Andy, Ian, Jeff, Andrew P., Adrian and Kurt. A couple that where skating grabbed a shovel and helped us scrape. Thanks!

Great to see so many of us at once. It has been a long time and we had a chance to catch up after the holidays. Adrian couldn't make it down tonight and he was almost a sorry as we where, for we wanted him to attempt another human cannonball threw this burning pallet.

The rinks are in great shape going into a milder weekend. Well done everyone.

At temperatures consistently around -26ºC (no factor of windchill), it makes it challenging for a flood tonight. Big crew turning up later tonight and are up for the challenge. I took these photos this afternoon while I was down dropping off more firewood to stay warm tonight.

See you all around 7:30-8 PM.
