Sunnydale Skate Exchange Saturday Jan.25. 2020

Report from Peter Thillaye


The weather was grey, intermittent rain, quite miserable, like Halifax in December.

The rink was lightly used. Ice surface looked excellent. The two rink attendants said that a big church group with their own skates had just left.

Sunnydale has itís own tractor with snowblower and Zamboni. Zamboni crew were proud of the fact that they have new boards and new glass. The Virgin Fm radio station was blasting out from the rink speakers.

There was no signage anywhere on the rink or in the building about the skate exchange.

The skate exchanges was set up on a set of tables. There were about 6 staff there/ all the skates that were not taken at previous exchanges are still showing up. There were more adult skates than at Mel Lastman. A small number of people were sorting through and trying skates. There was face painting, hot chocolate, and popcorn -- friendly atmosphere.
