Well... It Was A Snow Day Alright!!!

BIG thanks to the Awesome team team tonight.
Claire (on skates), Kris, Ian, Bill and Kurt

Kris and Bill were done earlier this afternoon blowing and clear for hours which really gave us the advantage tonight. We all just focused on clearing the snow for the weekend. Ice is in great shape after Monday's flood.

We have such a great group of volunteers and your help has been noticed throughout the community and beyond. Our ice has become a destination spot for skater and its all because of your efforts. Big thanks to the whole team.

Before the ice melts I would like to propose an IceGuys team family skate party. A Friday or Saturday around 5 pm. I still have spolumbos sausages. Bring your kids and skates. We do a BBQ and have some cheers. Not sure if this Saturday or Sunday is too soon! But I would like your feedback.

Here are some shots from the more than 12" of snow we cleared on both rinks tonight. Kris in the one blowing the snow

More White Stuff Over the Weekend...

Almost a foot (12") fell over the weekend and left the rinks covered. William is back from Nova Scotia for a few months and came down Sunday afternoon with his shovel to clear some of the ice for skaters. Thanks Bill!!

I met Bill again this morning while I was blowing off the White Stuff. He helped to clean up the edges after the blower.




Looks like we have a good group again tonight to help flood. It's been a week since we put down any H2O.

3 coats on the lower, 2 on the upper
