Saturday Dec.3 2011

At 10 a.m. this rink had excellent ice. Two kids out on the ice with shinny equipment, two more changing inside the change room. There was no "opening date" sign anywhere, but the bulletin board did have other hand-lettered, useful signs.

The metal City of Toronto sign says no shinny, ever, but the local sign reflects actual usage, and compromise.

This long, narrow rink was built for pleasure-skating, but by tacit consent, one end of the rink is often used for kids' shinny hockey. The change room is dramatic in its architecture, as are most of the North York rinks.
