The Alexander's Backyard Rink 2002/03
Lindsay, Ontario  Canada

December 2002
Rink


The Alexanders write: 
"We started building our rink in late November 2002.  And we were skating in early December.
 
The rink is 24 X 32 and consists of an industrial banner used as a liner.  Boards include 4 x 4 x 8 3/4 inch plywood supported by 4x4x4 wood posts driven into the ground with steel spikes.  
 
We've incoprated many of the elements suggested in your web site including yellow kick boards for that NHL look and high powered lighting for night time skating (keene 175 industrial watt).  A red centre line was painted earlier in the season and Canadian Flags are present for that hockey arena effect.  We even tried pouring some milk on the ice to make it whiter (but without success).
 
The ice is up to 3 feet deep on one end due to our sloping lot.  An ice resurfacer keeps the ice in pristine condition."

Great job and thanks for the pic guys.
