Built a shell for the Rink out of snow.
Another angle. Hose in Background is for icing the walls to make'em strong.
Added a 6 mil plastic liner (20'x50') and started to fill in the water.
The rink water came from our dug well. I quickly brought out the jet pump to get some water into the rink before everything, including the pump, froze. Don't try this at home.
A decent ice base.
The first testers. A little crunchy. Going to need another layer.
Now we're ready.
Getting'em ready for Dartmouth hockey scholarships.
Nothing beats night skating.
