I can't count how many twisted ankles I suffered from leaks that hit the ice in 1 spot and created holes in the ice
Ah the tractor with the plywood box trailer housing and auger and a strip of wet cloth to flood.
The old Dartmouth NS Memorial in the 70's didn't have even a tractor. Kids with ice scrapers and the guys pulling water tanks with cloths behind........rhen there are the rinks where in the middle of winter where you go outside to warm-iup
F*k I'm old
We return you to regularly scheduled Brit hockey now
