Should the boards be put into the ground? That may be tough since the ground is frozen now. We are currently getting freezing temperatures here in Alberta with snow so I figured I should start on my rink. Since this is my 1st year building and I'm a complete rookie at this, I had a few questions.
Use a level. String levels work well, or a long straight board with a level on top. Don't guess, as this has a big effect on how high and solid your boards should be, and how critical and leakproof your tarp must be.
