Taking the Ice Out

img

The COVID-19 pandemic put an early end to all activities at the Swan River Centennial Arena and so crews were busy with the removal of the ice on March 23. Being that it was the first year that the new temporary ice surface was in use, workers had to do things a little differently than in prior years. While they still scraped down the ice to remove and preserve the decals, instead of bringing in heavy machinery to clear the remaining ice they instead had to wait as the ice melted and pump away the excess water as to not disturb the sand base.
