It's that beautiful time of year when the weather cools a little and everyone settles back into school and a regular routine. It's also an exciting time for all the kids setting upon a new season of hockey, ringette and figure skating!
Visits to the local arena become frequent. For some, it's the first days with their 4 & 5 year old hockey and ringette players. For others, it's the intensity and pressure of a new season of rep hockey and long rides between centres. And still others begin learning new twists and turns in their new routines - maybe even an axel this year!
You moms and dads are a hearty bunch. It's a huge commitment, but it sure is fun! For those of you who make a backyard rink this year, join us on the journey. For those who wonder how to go about it, have a look around online and check out the resources at RinkMaster.com and on YouTube. Rink building is a rewarding experience and brings wonderful family memories for years to come.
This is a fun time of year getting settled into a new season, and enjoying Saturday nights watching your favourite NHL team. Enjoy!
