There's ice on the rink and the mats are out. But no lights on -- that suggests that they're not planning night-time floods. The rink maintenance staff said that they started hose-flooding today -- four times in the daytime, and then some more in the evening around 6 pm.

11 a.m. The staff said that they are not yet ready to open. The ice has some thickness, and they have used the zamboni some. Today a two-foot strip of south-facing ice, right against the boards, appeared to be melted, showing the cement through about an inch of water.

The staff said that there were no overnight floods at Broadlands, to get the ice started, just evening floods.
