Last weekend we began the construction of a hockey rink on the lake. This rink has been Martin's dream ever since he came to Colville Lake and he was determined to make it a reality this year.
With the help of many students we cleared a large portion of ice and smoothed it over the best we could. This weekend the goal is to flood it. Martin purchased a water pump for the school. He will drill a hole in the ice and pump water onto the surface of the rink. The challenge will be to spread the water before it starts to freeze.
The kids took turns going for rides on the skidoo and helping shovel snow. It was neat to see them take ownership of the project.
The whole project took a good 6 hours. I look forward to the completed project and our first Colville Lake School hockey game.
