"I first put up a half-hearted
rink about four years ago using only things
I already had at my house.
The results were unimpressive but very
then I have expanded to a rink of 15' x 33' last year (2002-2003).
Having twin 5 year old boys
who learned the names "Sakic" and "Bourque" before many of their relatives
names, seemed like a good
enough reason to perpetuate
the effort this year.
Limitations of level ground
and erratic Chicago weather compel me to keep the rink to a manageable
(15' x 39') and not too deep proportions.
But, without things like
our rink, the winter would seem so much longer."
That's what is all about
Steve. They are lucky boys. Thanks for the pic.
