Re: Need some help!!!!

Going to jump in here for my first post... Steve, I guess it all depends on how high you have your boards and your tarp. What is the height of your rink and how high is the water currently? I've been building a backyard rink on my lot for 10+ years and I have a severe gradient. Currently I have abou...

Kevin in Ottawa, Ontario

Hey folks, Name is Kevin and I have been building a rink in my backyard since I've had this backyard (well almost). We bought the house back in 1999 and I started building a rink in the winter of 2000-2001 (I think... it's been so long and been through so much). Last year I started writing a blog ca...

Re: What's your "must have" rink tool?

My must-haves for the rink... 1) Home-boni or RinkRake... without this gem, I would never get the arena quality ice I have in my backyard. 2) Single-stage Snowthrower - a donation to the rink by a friend, this baby has gotten me out of some heavy snowfalls and wet snows. Just powerful enough to clea...

Joe:

Been trying to reply to the PM but it won't let me - nor can I compose a message to you. Maybe I just need to post a couple of more times.

Cheers

First Hockey of the Year

The forecast for Sunday, January 7th was sunny and minus 9 celsius. I started making phone calls & texts on Thursday - before I knew it, I had 10 guys interested in playing some backyard hockey on Sunday afternoon. Mother Nature was on my side as well as she dropped the temperatures to -12C over...

Re: Kevin in Ottawa, Ontario

Hey Chris, Ottawa is a beautiful city for sure. I moved here in 92 from the east coast and now I can't see myself anywhere else. As for the canal, I have skated on it several times - including an end to end trek I did with a friend once (that was a long day!!). I haven't been on it in years and I ke...

Ouch! The best thing that could happen to this site is MORE Canadian influence. :-)

Re: First Hockey of the Year

Surprising only one person got checked over the boards (and it wasn't me) and only one other person complained about a body check (and it wasn't me - receiving or giving).

Wife has a girls' skate night planned for Friday on the rink and I'm sure there will be lame music being played then as well.

Re: Mike in Greater Boston area

I agree - that is a nice looking rink! The colour (I'll add the u since I'm Canadian) of the water shouldn't matter - mine was pretty brown at the beginning from the leftover dirt on my tarp but the majority of it settled and it's solid ice now. I think the mistake made was the amount of water put i...

Re: First Hockey of the Year

Chris - you just need better friends! :-D I think the biggest draw to my rink is the fact that I have two sets of goalie equipment for the rink so there is a good chance that 'someone' will end up with gear one and be a target. Added to that - the majority of my friends are hockey players that I pla...
