March 18/18

Thank you to all our Rink Rat Volunteers for maintaining both rinks over one of the longest skating seasons in memory! First flood of the season at the hockey rink was November 4/17 with the last flood occurring March 8/18.  The ice at the hockey rink is quickly disappearing and soon it will be basketball & ball hockey time…enjoy the other season!

March 3/18

Looking at the weather forecast it appears we might just get another week out of the hockey rink and surpass our March 5th last flood record:
Sunday, March 4th @ 9pm
Tuesday, March 6th @ 9pm
Thursday, March 8th @ 9pm

February 26/18

As March approaches and the sun gets higher in the sky, the days the ice remains in the rink becomes numbered. The ice along the north side of the rink by the benches is first to go because the sun heats up the asphalt there and the ice quickly disappears.  We have two floods scheduled this week and will play it day by day pending the sun and the forecast.  So get out there and enjoy the hockey rink before its gone and basketball season begins!

Thank you to the volunteers who came out to start the flooding procedure again at the hockey rink. We will do daily floods to get the rink operational, hopefully on Christmas Eve!  Please do NOT skate on the rink just yet as there is still exposed asphalt that will result in injuries (face-plants).

December 5/17

With the weather forecast looking more favorable to rollerbladding, biking and being on a patio, flooding has been suspended until colder temperatures return…maybe next year 😉

Due to warm weather flooding has been suspended at both rinks.  For everyone’s safety please stay off the surfaces until flooding resumes, with the long range forecast that could be Sunday, December 3rd…stay tuned!

SMCA is looking for rink volunteers to join our Rink Rat Team and help flood the pleasure and hockey rinks in our community.

Its a great excuse to get outside for some exercise & fresh air in the winter…and it’s fun!
