COOLING AT LAST! After a challenging couple weeks of problem solving and trouble shooting, our refrigeration partners were finally able to remedy the moisture accumulation that was in the system, which is a common complication that can occur when starting up a cooling system. Thank you for your patience and support as we worked to resolve the issue. We know it has been disappointing to not skate for the last couple of weeks, but now that the chillers are on, we can enjoy the ice rink until the end of the season! (And if you hadn’t helped us achieve our dream of having chillers, we would have been closed for the season by now due to all the warm weather. So thank you again for your generosity!). We hope this glitch will be a faded memory as the cooling system serves our community for decades to come with full seasons of ice.
