John Batiuk's Backyard Rink 2002/03
Melfort, SK Canada


December 2002
Rink


John writes: "This is my 6th year building rinks in my back yard.  This rink measures 32' x 80'.  The usual season of use here in Melfort Sask. is from about Dec. 5 to about March 19.  This year I finished the rink on November 30th."
 
"I flood directly onto the grass until the rink is level.  After that I use a 4' wide homemade (resurfacer) style flooder (mounted on an old lawn mower) to finished the job and to resurface the rink as needed.  This flooder is connected to a hot water supply that creates an excellent hard surface that even my son and his fellow Pee Wee hockey teammates can play for a couple hours before resurfacing is required."

Great job and thanks for the pic John.
