Rink Diary 2006 - 2007

Feb.22 3.05 pm

snow on rink at 3 pm

heavy, wet snow this morning closed most rinks. Ryerson still untouched at 3.05 pm. Looks pretty anyway.

Jan.2 2007, 3.35 pm

Seven skaters. One staff person inside at desk (no lookout from there).

Dec.18 2006

Very smooth clean ice. Only 1 skater. No schedule posted but no need -- always pleasure skating, cleaned by a flying squad that comes when it comes -- no ice resurfacing schedule. There's one building attendant, who monitors the building and ice.

The change room is very skate friendly with mats (though not all the way around), garbage cans and clean room. The washroom could use a coat of paint! The change room has a giant rock incorporated into the design, with translucent windows for light but no visibility out to the ice.

There's no food or vending machines.

There are no shovels in case of snow.

Dec.10 2006

High 7 celsius; low 1. Sunny. But this rink is mainly in shade since it's surrounded by tall buildings and construction making them even taller. At 3 p.m. there were no skaters, but then four came on. The change room was locked, with no sign. the ice showed little evidence of skaters having been there earlier, nor of earlier maintenance, but it was solid.
