The ice is in! The ice is in!!! Let’s play hockey. You can view the schedule on the website: www.stumptowniceden.com
Don’t foget about the adult hockey skills class starting next week.
I still need a captain each in A B and C.
Drafts are Sept. 28 & 29. ALL PLAYERS MUST BE REGISTERED BY SEPT. 27.
Something new for league this year that I know you will all enjoy: I am contracting the Glacier Nationals videographer, Scott Capestany, to enhance our already awesome adult league program. He is going to film many parts of our league season starting with the draft and ending with a live broadcast of all three(A,B,C) championship games. There will be multiple camera angles, pre/post game interviews, and much more. Stay tuned for more information…
Getting the ice in this year proved quite challenging for me and my staff. Equipment failure, working night shifts, excessive heat, nothing can stop us. Special thanks to Justin Riechers and John Hoepfer for busting thier humps with me the last three weeks to get the ice in. It looks great!!! We did it! … (that means you should all tell Justin and John thanks when you see them)
To all friends of the ice rink,
Due to the unseasonal warm temperatures this week the ice rink will not open as originally scheduled on Friday September 9th. My staff and I have been working diligently to have the facility ready, but mother nature has other plans for the next few days. We are half way through the ice making process, our refrigeration system is operating at it’s maximum capacity. Finishing the ice making coupled with the warm ambient temperatures would exceed the capacities of our refrigeration system.
The current plan is to open the facility on Monday September 12th at 5:00pm. The weather channel says it will be a little cooler next week. Cross your fingers for cold, yucky Montana weather. The new schedule is available at www.stumptowniceden.com
The first week of the adult hockey skills camp will also be cancelled. The camp will be available Sept. 19-21 and 26-28.
Please pass this message on to anyone you may know in the hockey/skating community.
