Gorgeous ice rink: It was a very dark night, no moon, and I drove past the ice rink around 7 p.m. It was gorgeous. First I wondered what the huge lights were shining across the way. I thought helicopter landing. No, it was four huge lights shining on the rink. The ice was so smooth, it was a mirror. And with the bright lights shining on it, the reflection was magnificent. The lights turn on at dusk and off at 10 p.m.
I must say the ice condition was excellent. It is a challenge to create such a huge and yet smooth flat surface. So the ice skating is perfect. I hear that there are people regularly skating in the evening. So it’s fun to get a game of tag or crack the whip going. We thank all the Town of Sand Lake workers who maintain such a lovely rink for our community.
