Kingsmere Rink – Dec. 21 update & request for volunteers to supervise fieldhouse

The hockey rink is almost ready to skate on. If all goes well, it should be ready for tomorrow (Friday Dec. 22). The puddle rink is not ready to skate on and will not be ready for another few days. Please stay off the puddle rink.

We are looking for additional volunteers to supervise the rink this season. This typically means one 3 hour shift per week. Supervision volunteers are responsible for unlocking the fieldhouse so community members can use the change room and washroom, and being the emergency contact if there are any problems (e.g. call 911 if someone is hurt). We are required to keep the fieldhouse open for a minimum number of hours each week, so please let us know if you can volunteer on a weekly basis, or biweekly, or even as a standby if we have a last-minute cancellation.

Here is the schedule:
– Weekdays one 3 hour shift from 6pm-9pm
– Saturday: three 3 hour shifts starting at 11am
– Sunday: three 2 hour shifts starting at 1pm

Please let us know if you are interested by emailing glabarparkca@gmail.com.

Thank you!

Kingsmere Rink Status

Happy Sunday All!

We closed the rink yesterday because the outdoor temperature is above freezing.  There is standing water on the hockey rink and puddle rink, and it’s not safe for skating or playing on.

Please stay off the rink for now.  When it gets below freezing again, the ice should be perfect for skating!  For example, Monday’s forecasted high is +1C, and the low is -8C.  It will likely be good for skating if temperatures only go above freezing for an hour or two in the middle of the day.  As long as it’s below freezing most of the day, the ice should be fine to skate on.

Thank you.
