Bill, Ian, Kris and Kurt(below), put down two coats on each tonight. We started scraping at our usual time at 8 pm. When we got there there was a group of skater playing a game of shinny on the lower. We told them that we are flooding tonight, but we will let you keep skating on the lower while we scrape the upper. We also asked if they could help us clear/scrape the lower when ready. So thanks to the above group of skaters that helped out.
Lower = 37 coats
Upper = 31 coats
So far 2019 has been mild with above normal temperatures. Last night was about -5ºC with no wind.
Really could have used some more iceguys last night. Big thanks to Bill, Craig and Kurt who were brave enough to come out to play in the snow.
We spent 2 hours on the lower and ran out of energy to clear the upper rink. Please feel free to head down and create some Whoopsie Doodles on the upper tonight.
Shinny hockey started tonight at 5 PM. Great turn out with over 20 kids of all ages and skill levels.
Grant and Jean did a great job of organizing and getting the players on the ice and keeping them warm. Temp was cold enough to make the parents stomp their feet and rub their hands while keeping an eye on kid.
I took some shots:
Let's plan to flood Thursday. Weather is warming up again.
