Monday January 3 2011, e-mail from a skater named Eric, visiting from Kansas. Eric wrote:


Just returned from a little vacation to Toronto to play some shinny and just hang out around the city.

Where I live in Kansas, I can get about 45 minutes of ice time per week, so it is a fun break to head up there and get a few hours per day.

I figured I've found your website so helpful, that i would run through our week and report on the rinks we visited.

Summerlea 4:30pm: This rink had half a dozen shinny players when we arrived. The ice was in OK shape. The crew arrived to clean the ice, but spent the entire time removing a large pool of blood from an injury on the ice surface and said they didn't have time to clean the rest of the rink as a result. After 6pm, the crowd picked up and about 20 shinny players tried to split the ice into two games, each with several teams. A few pleasure skaters, including several fairly young kids, tried to stay out of the way.
