CURLING RINK LINER HITS MARK

The Western Producer - Camrose Bureau

REDWATER, Alta– After spending hours painting, repainting, flooding and refolding the sheets of ice at his local curling club, Kevin Grumetza thought there had to be a better way to make a curling rink.

It was during the middle of the night after a late night painting session that the part-time farmer cam up with his idea of the printed rink liner.

FLUSHING ICE PAINT OUT OF YOUR ARENA FOREVER

By Colleen O'Shea

“It was an environmental mess.”

One of the many things the new Public Works Manager for the Town of Thorsby, Alberta wanted to change for an environmental impact was how the operations department dealt with the ice paint cleanup. According to Wayne Maclean, at the end of each season, the ice from the Arctic Spas Recreation Complex was dumped in a ditch behind the arena. Once the ice melted, residue from the ice paint coated the grass. It eventually found its way into the storm sewer which lead to a creek about half a mile away.

A #2020Vision for Ice Arenas

By Colleen O'Shea

A new year -- and a new decade -- means new initiatives and clear vision! On January 29th, I’ll be hosting the #2020Vision for Ice Arenas. It's a Lunch & Learn on energy- and resource-saving methods and it will be held at the WinSport Arena in Calgary, Alberta. It's hashtagged "#2020Vision" because we need a clear path to reducing our arenas' energy spends and waste of resources -- and this is an opportunity to find out how.

energy- and resource-efficiencies for indoor ice arenas

By Colleen O'Shea

Lotte Schlegel, the Executive Director for the Institute for Market Transformation, declared this decade a "Decade of Action" and I couldn't agree more. She says we need to "embrace disruption and put our buildings to work to address the urgent challenges of the 21st century." In the world of indoor ice sports, Schlegel's challenge means looking at all facets of operations hard in the face to see if there are better, more cost-effective ways to run them and still make great ice.
