Update on Rink's Surface
Updated: Feb 27, 2018
We received notice on Thursday of last week that the supplier of the spacers that will go under the boards was having to hand cut the spacers due to the thickness of the material. This has resulted in a delay for the delivery and start of the rink surface replacement. The estimated completion we are being provided at this time is early in March. Unfortunately, this delay will push back the start of the Spring Season and condense it a bit. Evaluations are now scheduled for Thursday March the 15th and Saturday the 17th. Our first Games will be Saturday March 31st. We are still planning on getting the full 10.
We wanted to give some information as there has been some misinformation going around. Rinks are under construction and on schedule for the Spring Season! If you have been by there it looks a mess but it is right on schedule for us to start the spring season at the beginning of March as is normal. The surface is going to be great and will benefit players of all levels. The other surface had past its useful life and had become very slick and difficult to skate on. Newer players are going to be astonished at how well they skate on the new surface. Look forward to seeing you all at the rink and hopefully it will be warmer by then.
ery exciting news! The city has started work on installing the new rink surface. The new surface is Versa Court Speed Outdoor. The work will continue over the next few month’s and will be done by the end of February. We will keep you updated on the progress.
