Cre­at­ing the Tray­town Rink

The Beacon (Gander) - - Community -

Atom hockey player Braden Black­wood gets in some ex­tra prac­tise time with his fa­ther on Jan. 20. The rink is still a lit­tle rough. One more flood and it should be in ex­cel­lent shape – pro­vid­ing the weather co­op­er­ates. John Denty pushes slush off the rink fol­low­ing some snow and mild weather at the be­gin­ning of Jan­uary. If the rink is left in a slushy state like this, it will likely be un­us­able for the rest of the win­ter. The tem­per­a­ture with wind chill reads -18C as Cur­tis Ab­bott douses the cleared rink. Four vol­un­teers helped flood the rink with wa­ter on Jan. 7. “You can do it with one per­son, but it’s very dif­fi­cult,” says John Denty.
