Lindenwoods CC rinks won't be ready for another week or two according to the receptionist I talked to there. Swinging by after work today to see if there's been any progress.

I'm unsure why this matters so much to you.

Anyway, if we can actually coordinate something I'm game for attempting to show up.

I think I will hit the ice Saturday for sure, probably during the afternoon.

I have goalie equipment (old school) and a fair amount of athleticism for any weekend shinny.

I am sure Chalmers is nearly done

They have had their rink lights on at 5am on my way to work the last few days.

Notre Dame was open last night. It looks like pretty much every rink will be up and running by the weekend.

I'm going to have to go check I heard the NK rinks are going to be open soon or are possibly open already. ESP will be ready weeks later than everyone else as usual

The local one I'm by is like that too.. Earl Grey CC I think it's called. The ice goes in late and they don't take care of it at all. By January last winter it was so bad you could barely skate on it.

I can't believe they let it go that bad. Wow. ESP isn't that bad I guess I really don't have that much to complain about.

At one point last winter I wanted to ask if they could give me a key to the shed so I could take care of it instead.

Does anyone know whats happening with the outdoor ice today? I'm guessing this mild weather pushed it back/ closed the open cc's but has anyone skated?

I actually skated at Bourkevale last night, but ice was crap. During a stop, the ice was coming off in flakes.

I might drive around and do a few rink checks tonight. I'm hoping the have recovered and can be skated again.

I have a feeling it'll take a couple more days to get them skate able. It was raining yesterday...

I'm 50 and spent allot of time on outdoor rinks as a kid. I remember the ice being ready by mid-November back in the day... Damned global warming

I hear ya, our local rink didn't have ice to almost Christmas last season, used to remember skating first week of December all the time.

So anyone have the DL on what rinks are running late night, even Sundays with nets out?

I don't mind changing outside, just would like lights and some nets.

Red River closes and locks their rinks up...bums.

Not sure how late Bronx is open, though every time I have check it was a pretty mean game of shinny going on.

Luxton has no nets, and is in the middle of Scotia Heights...so I would probably catch some serious ire if I were to start up with slap shots after 10pm.
Speaking of which, there is a serious need for nets @ Luxton CC. Their only net last time I saw it was laying in a broken heap on the snow bank beside the rink. It was a sturdy thick tube net, but it needed to be bolted in the middle. Apparently it is dead now. I suspect they could use some old beater sticks and pucks too. They loan skates there, might have a few sticks but I had to give 3 kids 8-11 years old...with loaner skates, a puck as they were using a chunk of broken CEMENT…Now that is a poor ass community center!
(Told the kid to keep the puck, his face lit up.)

I grew up in South St. Vital, and Dakota always had nice ice, and if we were out on the ice, most nights they would leave on rink lit for us, with 1/2 the lights on...
Good enough for us.
Just looking for a place to go out after the wife and kid go to sleep to burn off some extra energy, and be able to ring some iron without pissing the nearby residents off.

Cheers!
