Backyard Hockey Rink Timelapse Video
Talk about your labours of love. The Devil said she wanted me to build a rink in our backyard this Winter and I just couldn’t do be brought to building a 15’x15’ sheet of ice which would last for three months tops for a 15 and soon-to-be 18 year old who would go from end to end in a stride and a half……but now in looking at this, I feel a twinge of shame.
A campaign is under way to save the Belleville Memorial Arena which is a classic old rink and one of my favourites from days gone by. I wish the same type of group had been organized to save our own local rink, which has since been replaced by a shiny new fire station.
Check out the The Belleville Memorial Arena Preservation Society and I urge those with a nostalgic nature…and who doesn’t have that when it comes to our grand game…to check out and support the campaign to preserve a bit o’ hockey history.
