Trying to Flood, ... and We Did!

 Bud, the retired IceGuy, took this this afternoon. Great to see people using our park.

Bud also included this in his email; "Thanks to the Hard Work of the Rosemont Ice Guys for making this a community to be proud of."

Tonight we had Craig, Jamie, Peter, BILL, and BILL, Andrew P., Dan and Kurt.
Did I mention BILL.

Let's go again tomorrow night at 8 PM.

Boxing Day Snow...

The snow prevented the team from flooding last night, but it got a good clean.

Craig, John, Andrew P., Chris, Jeff, and Neil. John was able to peel back the banks with the Snapper.

Another snow fall that was cleaned up by the crew.
