Outdoor Rink needs Volunteers and Ice

The boards are up (and looking solid with all those new replacement planks – click on the photo for a better view). All we need now is some cold weather and volunteers to help shovel, supervise and otherwise keep the rink operating. Contact Jim Kot for marching orders (umm, shovelling schedules). High school students can get credit for ice work.

I’ve appended the information about rink hours, see for the more up to date and prettier version.

The first day of the rink is always weather dependent, it’s not usually sooner than December 27 but not later than January 1st.
The official last day is February 28, weather permitting the Rink Coordinator will try to keep open as long as he can.
Last year he was able to stay open till March 7th, and did a fantastic job keeping the ice in such great shape for the season.

Don’t forget to bring your helmet! Skate safe, have fun!
