Overview:

  We are a small community about 20 minutes outside Fredericton NB and we trying to build a new outdoor rink in our community  complete with boards ,lighting and warming hut.But do to a few set backs we are once again this year without a rink.We had the Military interested in comlpeteing our project ,but at the same time they had started the Oromocto Food Bank ,which is more important .So needless to say we are back to square one and unable to do anything this year due to the weather and are forced to wait till the spring and start our quoting process with hopes of having a rink next winter.
  In the past years we had a pond to skate on ,but due to safety concerns we had to fill it in as there was no fence around it and the cost of a new fence would have been $15000 , so we have been trying for a more permanent structure.
