"This is my first attempt
at making a rink. There is no liner...snow based. I did all
the 'ground' work this past summer. Well actually I didn't but an
'excavator' did. Once we started getting some cold weather this past
December I started making the base.
We had a January thaw last
week that brought 70mm of rain followed quickly by minus 15 temps.
I thought that would have been the end of it but instead it held the water
and now I have about 4 inches of ice instead of 1 or 2.
I also forwarded a picture
of my "ice cleaner". I would never have been able to maintain
the rink without it. Just too much snow with a lot of drifting.
Next year, I'll have
better lighting and netting at each end. Kids love it."
Great job and thanks for
the pic Donald.
