Get­ting the sta­dium ready

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace is just about ready for hockey. Once the Trin­ity Conception Fall Fair con­cluded a cou­ple of weeks ago, work be­gan on mak­ing ice. That in­cluded the some­times mun­dane task of paint­ing the ice. While the lines and cir­cles have to be done by hand, putting lay­ers of white paint down is aided by this ma­chine, which sprays mul­ti­ple streams of the wa­ter-based paint over the sur­face. Here, sta­dium man­ager Mike Adam gets his hands dirty in putting a layer of white paint on one of the first lay­ers of ice. That cloud on the bot­tom is the paint be­ing sprayed.
