The "Rink" was built in 1967 by a group of ambitious volunteers and is still operated today by some dedicated volunteers who see that young and old in our community have a place to skate, play hockey and curl.
The natural skating ice is usually in by late November and lasts until the end of March, weather permitting. Annual fees are $80/family or $40/single. Skating lessons are offered with discounted rates for multiple children. The lessons run from January to March. There are one-time skate fees of Adults- $5 and Students - $3.
Curling runs from January to March on three sheets of ice with a fun league operating two evenings per week. The annual fees are $150/family, $60/single and $30 student. The school makes use of these facilities for phys-ed classes and for curling bonspiels.
The concession, janitorial, day to day operations and fundraising are all done through volunteer efforts. There are currently seven board members, but we are always looking for new members. If you would like more information, please call Neil Crosbie at 756-2784.
Hockey Night in Mortlach
Some years, on Friday nights, usually starting in January until the ice melts, is "Hockey Night in Mortlach". From 6-9pm is general skating for the family and kids and from 9-1am is recreation hockey. The curling side will also be opened for all who want to give a go at curling. There will be a cash bar upstairs with game boards and cards for those that want to play and watch hockey. The counter will also be open for burgers, etc. and the Kinsmen and Kinettes will be selling wings and fries later in the evening. All proceeds from these events go to the maintenance and upkeep of the rink (power bills are extremely high in the winter months).. Colleen Campbell would be the person to speak to for more information about events at the rink (email@example.com).
Our rink is run by volunteers - WE NEED YOU !
