There’s bad ice…
…and there’s good ice.
outdoor rink report – Wed. Jan. 11:
Lakeview, Maki – facility open, ice in great shape
Lynwood, Westcliffe – facility closed, ice not ready
Lakeview rink Youtube
My intent is to supplement ottawarinkconditions.ca and let skaters know what conditions are like – it’s no fun to get dressed up and head off to an outdoor rink only to find it closed or in poor shape.
I’m not criticizing the people at Lynwood and Westcliffe who are building the rinks – I’m just congratulating the people at Lakeview and Maki who have done such a great job of serving their communities and showing what’s possible when you have the motivation/organization necessary to make the short season last as long as possible.
So bravo to both Al, Andrew and Alex and to the Crystal Beach-Lakview Community Association!
A nice touch at Maki is the speaker that can be attached outside so that skaters can listen to music.
