Skating lessons for UC students, crepe stand, figure skating performances, a live DJ, and more! Friday 8-10pm!
Check our rink schedule for public skating and open hockey times. We are now on the regular schedule again!
Northland Figure Skating Academy now has their own blog section on our website!
We had a great season of strobe lights, lasers and the fog machine and look forward to next fall. Until then all public skating returns to normal public skating, including Friday and Saturday nights.
Our ice is fresh, painted, and we're back to a normal schedule!
Take a behind-the-scenes look at our weekend repairs!
Our system is back together and ready to run...Unfortunately Univar Chemical Co. cannot get the CaCl2 to us until Monday...we placed the order for 1500 gallons at 0.010 specific weight with rust inhibitor and de-foaming agent but they did not have it in their Cincinnati warehouse so it is on its way from their Tennessee warehouse. We are looking at a Tuesday Opening date.....
De-humidification finished....the rink will be dry..!! Pump is giving us some fits....sits 3/4 of and inch higher so we are cutting and welding new stand for pump that matches up with motor and 8 inch return header. Then we have to re-pipe the 8 inch header on the outflow side of pump and move it 7 and 1/2 inches out.....cut pipe and weld pie shape wedge into existing pipe so it will line up and go into ammonia chiller.....!!! Hey...!!! Someone tell my wife I do more than drink coffee and read the hockey news....
New De-humidification controls almost finished..!! New Brine Pump (used to pump the CaCl2) through the rink floor pipes and chiller (expansion tank) has arrived. Assembly and Installation tomorrow and hopefully we will be pulling down the floor tomorrow night.....!!
