Could have skates yesterday, but we were running around and didn’t have time. Today though….

Re: 2021 Backyard Ice Rink

After the snow storm, it looks pretty but it isn’t thick enough to skate on yet.

Re: 2021 Backyard Ice Rink

About 15 hours into the fill. Expecting a lot of snow tonight so I want the surface to be water so I don’t have to shovel.

Re: 2021 Backyard Ice Rink

Pulled out the plastic and started to fill. It takes about 15-18 hours to fill. Since I am on a well, I like to break it up over a couple of days https://i.postimg.cc/4dxPYD8w/596-B49-F2-480-A-4715-A059-A3-AA8-F893068.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/tCKBBmTC/619-C34-DE-18-E9-49-FB-89-FC-A7-E77-D53413-E.jpg

Re: 2021 Backyard Ice Rink

Cold Weather is here. I think it might be time to put the plastic down this afternoon and start filling.

Just had the propane company come over and they installed a quick connect to my 1000 gallon underground tank.

I am guessing you fill up the trash can or use a hose from the house. Or do you cut a hole and drop a pump in?

This seems easier than the way I do it. What is the ice thickness? Can you get a snowblower out there?

Re: Used Car Prices

My car died this week. Need a new engine, so that’s that. I am noticing a used Tacoma is the same price as a new Tacoma right now. That’s unreal

Re: 2021 Backyard Ice Rink

Quick update to this is... no update. Winter isn't in full swing yet, but temps at the end of next week look promising. I picked up my poly sheeting (40x100) for $263 this year from a local hardware store that caters to builders. Normally it is around $220 so COVID prices are still in full effect.

Re: Synthetic Turf help with power sweeper!

What does the manufacturer recommend? I couldn’t find anything online about using a power broom but I would imagine you don’t want blades coming out. The thick nylon on a power broom might just be to much. I would go to a rubber paddle or try using a regular push broom. Or lower the RPMs.

Re: 2021 College Football Season

Fickle and Freeman have essentially the same background. Fickle was Freemans position coach at Ohio State and then worked with him at Ohio State, left for Kent and Purdue, then back to him at Cincy. My guess is that someone made the calculation that the disruption to the program right before the CFP...

Re: 2021 College Football Season

The fact that the staff stays (and the next two recruiting classes) is a big part of it. I have only heard good things about Freeman and frankly if we hired Fickle, he would have probably been the head coach at Cincy. He is an up and comer and the players, administrators, alumni, and boosters all se...

Marcus Freeman, lets go. Telling that none of BK's assistants went with him even though they were offered, and offered substantial pay raises.

Re: 2021 College Football Season

My friends kinda hate me because I thought he should have been fired as soon as Declan Sullivan died. As cynical as we can get, he was still an adult in charge of essentially children and one of them died. I couldn't imagine being a member of the Sullivan family, they have more grace than I can ever...
