Hello. I have the supervision schedule all set for next week. I have 4 high school volunteers.

The city pushed back the opening of rinks to Monday January 13. It’s supposed to rain Friday and Saturday.

The plan is to go to the rink Thursday with a snow plow to pack down the snow that’s there. Then let the rain cover the rink for 2 days. Then it should be up and running next week with the cold weather.

It might not be ready Monday but it will be ready shortly after.

I have two or three people that have offered to help with maintenance. I will definitely need help next week.
