Volunteers make and clear our ice
Ritchie’s rules to skate by:
Flooding Ritchie’s outdoor ice begins when conditions are right: -10 C or colder at night; -5 C or colder during the day for several days. It takes several days to build up ice that will last the season.
The rink is open 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. weather permitting.
CLOSED when temperatures drop below -20 C (dangerous for skaters) or rise above 0 C (damaging for the ice).
CLOSED when snow is accumulating and until it can be cleared.
Open to all community league members, from Ritchie and elsewhere.
Skate tags recommended (available from Ritchie Foods).
In general, the boarded rink is for shinny hockey or other games of speed with equipment.
Leisure skating outside the boards.
Use at your own risk. Helmets recommended. Dress appropriate for the weather.
No alcohol. No smoking of any kind.
Not available for rent or exclusive use.
