Rink Diary

2015 - 2016

Feb.1, 2016

8 p.m.: Temp. 3 degrees, rink listed as closed.

Dec.29, 2015

All the city's outdoor rinks were closed today until later afternoon, because of the heavy, extremely wet snow. But Adam Beck opened in the first group of three. Good ice-making by the grouchy zamboni driver from a month ago? Who knows?

Nov.28, 2015

door locked

The rink was scheduled to be open, but there was only thin ice. A sign was posted on the door, saying the ice is "too soft so the rink is closed," and the doors were locked. Some knocking brought the zamboni driver to the door. He said, "can't you see how warm it is outside? Of course the rinks can't be open." I told him that quite a few rinks were open and the ice was fine. He said, "they have much better cooling." I said, "no, some of the ones that are open have the same amount of cooling as your rink. When did this rink start making ice?"

He rolled his eyes and said, "I'm busy, I can't take any more time to talk."

And slammed the door.


hoses still out -- when did they start ice-making?

Rink diaries from earlier years:

2014 - 2015

March 19, 2015

Sir Adam Beck, March 19, 1 celsius, only one skater all day

The rink was open, but although there were two staff on site, they had only one skater by 2 pm, and the rink didn't look like it would recover, since the sun was strong. Temperature: 1 celsius.
