A great BIG thank you goes out to our Rink Maintenance Braxton and family for a wonderful outdoor rink season 2012-2013! It was a record snowfall and extra long season. The shovels and hoses are put away for another season!
We can’t forget to say Thank You to all those who pitched in thru out the winter and helped out. Our neighbourhood is better because of you.
Shoveling: This is a huge job and is much easier (not to mention more fun) if there are helpers out on days that it snows.

We had great weather and good times at the 3rd Annual Rink Day for
Scotia Bank Hockey Day in Canada on Feb 12th, 2011
Family Day – feb 15th
We had about 70 people show up for family day.
Two police officers showed up and play ringette and hockey for about three hours.
It was windy and cool, I think most of the kids got wind burn. Even Global News showed up, there was about a 3 sec clip on the news of us that day.
Heather, Joan and Desiree came out to give Matthew a hand and other parents lent a hand.
Over all it was a great turn out and everyone had a great time.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a fun and successful day!
Jan 30th Rink Day!
A huge Thank You goes out to Matthew for organizing the 2nd annual Tim Horton’s Hockey Day in Canada “Rink Day”!
Even though Matt was unable to attend, his efforts were greatly appreciated by all who showed up.
There were skaters, representatives from the police force, representatives from our local Citizen Patrol group, along with Tim Horton’s hot chocolate, coffee and timbits.
Volunteers also bbq’d up some hot dogs with the fixings to ‘hit the spot’.
Rink Grant Granted!
Good News! We rec’d a grant for Rink Improvements which will include new wire mesh to replace the old wire. The new mesh will go 2ft higher to help keep the pucks in the rink, and will include 20ft more mesh on the Rink Shack side of the rink for safety of skaters coming out of the Shack.
Any broken side boards will be replaced, and all boards re-painted
Entrance to the North side of the rink will be move directly in line with the Rink Shack door
Cracked lenses on Rink lights will be replaced
Possibility of putting running water into the Rink Shack to provide 3 key components:
- “hot-mopping” of the rink (quicker than flooding once the base is in place, makes nice ice surface)
- indoor bathroom
