Alan writes: 
"The Oakleaf Gardens is 80 by 46 with 8 foot, 45 degree corners right in 
middle of central Maine's dairy farm country.  The rink is lined with a 5 mil 50' x 100' silage pit cover and trimed to size after the initial fill from the farm pond 200 feet away.  

The rink begins with 2 x 4's held upright with 24 inch long, 1/2 inch diameter pipe driven 18" in the ground and pipe straps screwed to the two by fours.  Add liner, pick weather window and flood.  Set in white 2 x 8's and secure to driven pipes with a spacer block, wood screws and more pipe straps and watch your boards freeze in good and tight.  Double your ice time with flood lights.  2nd year with this method and it works like a champ.  Number your boards before take down...lots easier come next years re-constuction!"

Great job and thanks for the tips and the pics Alan.
