It’s a record, at least in recent history. We can’t remember the last time we still had an ice rink open well past the third week of March. But we did, with shinny games popping up until the dying days of March. The rinks were open for almost four months this year. Our south rink was open until March 26. It was a great season and a very busy one that included the hosting of two Bourkevale hockey teams, who practiced at the club throughout the year. Bourkevale’s 10A2 team won gold in the winter Altona, MB tournament. It was a challenging season, too, for our volunteer ice crew. Record amounts of snow this year — double the average amount — coupled with the extended season made the job of cleaning and maintaining our ice extremely difficult. We’d like to send out a big thank you to our ice crew — Ron Templeton, Jeff Valgardson, Scotty Nystrom and Mike Templeton — who performed above and beyond the call of duty this year. Thanks guys!
