Rink Diary 2011 - 2012

Saturday Dec.3 2011

Morning: Good ice, no signage about the date of opening.

Evening, from rink user Eric HM: It's a small pad and there were at least 35 people there, mostly teens and young adults and the shinny was very fast, a couple of younger kids showed and up at one point there were 6 kids playing in a corner.

The Ice was really bumpy and was also torn up and had a lot of snow from heavy use. The south end of the rink was a little thin, though not through to the concrete. To everyone's disappointment, the lights turned off about 10:15, rather than the posted 11pm. The younger kids and a few parents stayed to play after the lights were off, since they finally had the whole rink to themselves.
