Hockey fever has hit our humble abode. My young fellas are in love with the sport (tonight they were learning on their own the acronyms for each and every NHL team). They are smart enough to know that to play ice hockey, learning to skate will be quite beneficial.
They are both involved in skating lessons (in fact my wife is currently taking adult learn to skate lessons just to keep up to them). With their impressive thirst for hockey I’ve long promised The First Lady, the Association and the Merger to construct a backyard skating rink.
Unfortunately for them my skills on building (anything) let alone maintaining an ice rink are severely lacking. They aren’t just lacking my friends, these skills are down right non-existent. Like many things in my life I’ve over-promised and (most likely) under delivered on this one.
Now I hate disappointing my family so it would appear that I’m in the market for some help. Judging by the following pictorial of this majestic backyard rink in Quebec methinks that I should call Justin LaChappell, the creator of this fine ice pad.
