2013 Community Outdoor Ice Rink Maintenance Workshop

Do you want to volunteer at your ice rink this year?   Please come to this free and educational workshop to learn more about how community ice rinks are operated.  Each outdoor ice rink is sponsored by a Community Association.  Each rink must have a certified ice rink captain who has attended the Outdoor Ice Maintenance Certification Program.  This workshop will cover basic flooding equipment, use of fire hydrants and standpipes and flooding techniques.  Please register in advance by phoning 250-561-7600 or coming into city hall. 

Sorry - this workshop has already taken place.  Please check back in November 2014 for the next one.
