Just to give an update, it was a wild week at the ice rink.Â If you remember, the week before saw single digit temperatures.Â When it became apparent that we were headed for a drastic change in weather, work on building the ice sheet up commenced.Â Going into the warmer weather, the ice remained in good condition, although wet at times.Â However, Monday evening, during one of the thunderstorms, the electricity briefly went out at the Park which shut the chiller down.Â It wasn’t noticed until later after the ice had begun to melt.Â Up until that point, the ice had remained in good condition.Â This was rectified, but the warm weather took a toll on the ice.Â Â The temperatures finallyÂ went down enoughÂ at nightÂ to allow theÂ rink to refreeze and remain frozen.Â
Then on Thursday evening, a skater intentionally broke through the ice to sever 2 tubing lines that carry the coolant through the ice sheet.Â There was coolant gushing almost 8 feet into the air.Â This presented a hazard in itself as glycol is extremely slick and you put it on an ice sheet and it’s worse than you can imagine.Â After repairs were made to the tubing, the ice had to be hosed down and actually cleaned with cleaners to remove all traces of the glycol.Â No ice was lost in during this downtime and normal operations have resumed. –>
