RINK UPDATE Dec. 16 2013:
Post date: Dec 20, 2013 4:51:6 AM
The rink elf and his equipment are broken and need some help. BFD may flood this afternoon if the snow can be cleared. Most of it is done, but there is a large pile that needs to be removed and the surface needs a quick scrape. Anything (snow or otherwise) left on the surface freezes on when it is flooded and makes for a very rough surface. If anyone is interested in helping maintain the rink this season, the best thing you can do is clear snow. Flooding is easy. Snow clearing is the bulk of the job. Please post a reply if you have cleared the snow today....and/or you are able to assist with clearing snow this season.
When does the snow need to be cleared??? Any time it snows and in the late evenings after skating. The rink gets flooded late at night or early in the morning as the rink is usually packed all day. Let's get this rink going for Christmas!
