Supporting Each Other...

Hard to believe that in just 6 days since our wrap up party, our times they are a changing.

Nick's Steakhouse and Pizza supported us, let's keep supporting them. I dropped by today to order a Pizza and say hi to Mark and His dad Nick. They are delivering pizza to your door with no contact with their drivers. So, if and when you get tired of fish sticks and frozen peas... order a fresh PIE!

This is Nick answering the phone today...
Take Care everyone.

WrapUp Party...

Well we made it official last night even though Mother Nature wants to keep things cold.

Thanks to everyone who was involved in volunteering their time and energy to keep the tradition of having the best ice in Calgary.
We "pulled" the goalies and benched them in the shed as well as organized things for next year.
Big THANK YOU to Mark Petros and Nick's SteakHouse for providing us with the pizzas for the event.
Let's see what happens over the next few days (damn corona virus), and try to get together again soon.

Another great season of incredible ice and dedicated crew.
Until next year,
Keeping the hose on the ice,

Last Flood. Its Official...

The team cleaned and did ONE last coat of the season on the lower ice. Shinny will be the last one Today.
Big thanks to everyone who came out to help over the season. We really had the best ice this year.

Thanks to the "die-hards" last night;  Craig, Bill, Andrew P., Daniel, Matt, Russel and Kurt.
We put a medium coat last night to try and get rid of the bumps caused by the under toe of water coming from under the ice. Grant will have on last Shinny tonight. Thanks Grant for all your help teaching the future skaters.

Total:
Upper = 61 coats
Lower = 69 coats

Speaking of future, we are planning on having a wrap up party for all of you Iceguys who helped out this year. Friday the 13th??  Who can make it. Ill check with Jackie to see if we can use the hall to raise a glass. Let me know if this day works for you SAY 7:00 pm.




Keeping the hose on the ice,
