EPISODE 3: Rink-Making Machine

October 31, 2017

When we decided to host this community hockey game for the show, it was really too late in the spring.  The community rink area did not have an existing ice surface and was now filled with 4-5 feet of snow.  We managed to clear the surface but because the sun was higher in the sky, the pavement beneath kept heating up in the spring sun and kept the water from freezing as a sheet.  Now what?  Well, if we were to be the hero’s then we should go to a shallow part of the river where the ice was still 3 feet of ice. This was the exact spot where the community used to host many hockey games.  The last game in this location was held in 1959.  The surfacer was the only type of device which was used in the community for the past 100 years.  It’s all we ever had in this part of the world.  Such is life in isolated communities.
