Ice Plant Refurbishment – Goal Reached!!!

We have reached our fundraising goal!!!

We will be able to go ahead with the full floor restoration thanks to the generous donations of both time and money from members and non-members! We will be sending out emails to those who pledged to donate funds, as we would like those to be sent into the club as soon as possible to ensure we can pay our upcoming bill.

Thank you to everyone who has been able to help out with reaching this goal! We will continue to send out labour schedules as they become available.

Ice Plant Repaired

A very big THANK YOU goes out to our ice crew for all their hard work and tireless dedication to keeping us operational.
Below is an update on the recent issue from our amazing Ice Crew.

ICE PLANT UPDATE

As some of you may be aware, on a routine check this Thursday at noon, it was discovered there was a significant decrease in the brine system head tank indicating a leak in the brine system (the fluid that cools the ice). The ice plant was shut down and a leak search was initiated. On Thursday afternoon, a leak was located on one of the nipple connections to the brine supply header (under the walkway at the scoreboard end of the ice).  AC Mechanical of Ottawa was called and they arrived at 8:30 am Friday to assist us with a repair.  The repair area is very congested, complicating the repair process. After much perseverance, a repair was installed. The brine system was refilled, vented and pressurized and the leak site observed Friday evening and again this morning. The repair is successfully holding. The ice condition has been assessed and it will be ready for curling in time for the Boxing Day Fun Spiel. The assistance from AC Mechanical was excellent and has resulted in keeping us operational! Their support so close to Christmas is greatly appreciated.

Have a very Merry Christmas.

Your friendly neighbourhood ice crew
