New Boards at the Rink

In case you haven’t seen it, this year we have a new set of boards at the rink. They’re made from pressure treated wood. I wonder if they still need painting (for splinters); could be a community project. If you look closely (click on the picture to get a larger version), there’s new netting at the ends too, and lighting. Quite deluxe, all we need now is ice!

By the way, there are plans to put a branch of the SJAM ski trail to the east of the rink, leading to the field house.

Outdoor Rink needs Volunteers and Ice

20151204 Champlain Park Rink looking NW.jpeg

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 https://champlainpark.org/the-rink/ for the more up to date and prettier version.
