Cooling down and playing at the rink

Apparently a rich guy had an industrial sized weather conditions control plan installed out here so that his little boy could have ice to practice his skating… Since the boy had gone off to college, the Mom started renting out the air conditioned space to use for interesting events.

It is so odd living in a country where no one plays hockey, for me, ice and snow was the norm when I was growing up, and so no one played baseball or pigskin, every one of us played hockey. When there wasn’t enough ice, every one of us played street hockey, so moving down here was a shock to the system. I don’t even believe anyone who watched hockey on TV down here, so it sometimes feels like an alien culture. I was never too large on street hockey, for myself and others it was an ice rink or get lost, but it’s so moderate around here there is never any ice! Recently, I found a group that has access to a private skating rink in a weather conditions controlled warebeach house outside of town. Apparently a rich guy had an industrial sized weather conditions control plan installed out here so that his little boy could have ice to practice his skating… Since the boy had gone off to college, the Mom started renting out the air conditioned space to use for interesting events. It would have been too fancy, I am told, except for the guy wanted to play hockey himself, however he’s got the giant AC and the ice, he just needed a few men to play with. That was how this local hockey club was founded, and now they meet twice a month at the air conditioned rink to play friendly option up games. I have to say laying out on the ice, under a giant air vent blasting myself and others with freezing air, absolutely took myself and others back to the afternoons of my youth.
