Here we are after a pond hockey game either last year or the year before. The chances appear very slim that we will be able to resurrect the rink for a match this year. I was out on the lake yesterday, and there is over a foot of dense, fine snow on the rink. Even though we've had days last week where the temperatures were at -40C, there is slush buildup under the snow. It looks like a huge effort and some luck would be required to get the rink going. I doubt if the "users" will be able to lend enough of a hand to make it happen.
