Rinks open early this year
Bourkevale's ice rinks opened almost a week earlier than last year. And last year's opening date was a modern-day record. The north and south rinks typically open during the first week of December. But this year, the club officially opened the rinks to the public on Nov. 23. A sustained blast of cold air in November allowed our volunteer ice makers to get an early start on flooding the rinks.
Bourkevale needs volunteers to help clear the ice when there are heavy snowfalls. If you can spare an hour or two from time to time to pitch in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put your name on our volunteer list. You don't have to come out every time it snows. But if you can help out a few times during the season, it will help take the burden off the same few volunteers who do it every time it snows. We only need two or three volunteers to clear snow at a time. Without volunteers, we would not be able to provide the community with the quality and availability of ice rinks that we do.
