This includes monitoring all the public skating session; checking out locker rooms and answering questions for all the various hockey organizations during games, practices, and private rentals; sharpening skates; and driving the Zamboni to maintain the best ice in town.
Being the old man here at the rink I also enjoy maintaining and grooming of the ice to ensure a good consistency that our users have come to enjoy. I also keep an eye on the Zam with greasing, oil, tires and general condition. If someone backs up the toilet I become a plumber of someone spills, I become the janitor, it's all part of the job.
