Report on the Toronto/East York rink staff meeting on October 23. Tino DeCastro is the recreation supervisor in charge of all the recreation rink staff in this district. There are also some rink staff subcommittees:

- Staff recruitment and training committee: they will put together a staff recruitment day on November 12, looking for skating instructors and rink monitors.

- Operational standards team: they will be in charge of making sure that a facility check list is completed for all rinks and rink change rooms in the Toronto/East York district.
