"Thanks Kris, we have a lot of fun with it. I work in television as a photographer/editorso that helps a bit. Unfortunately the year ended abruptly on February 14th. It looks like you had a good year."

Having a backyard hockey "rink" is a bunch of fun. Building and maintaining one is time consuming but in the end, worth it. This is our 9th year doing it and...

Thanks Tom!

I enjoyed your video, too, and the "bro-boni's" are hilarious.  My son noticed that he has the same pj's as your younger boy.

Ernie Partridge was a good friend and neighbor who was a master with an excavator.  He's the guy who cleared and leveled the spot where I build our rink.  He passed away in December of 2012, about two weeks before I got the first rink built, so he never got to see the result of his work.  We named our new backyard after him.
