Jeff and Stacy braved the bitter cold this weekend and finished creating a 2nd ice surface. We ask that hockey be played on the rink with the lights and the ball diamond rink be used by recreational and young skaters. Please share the surfaces with all users and either take trash with you or put it in the garbage bins. Weather is looking great leading up to our first scheduled Pond Hockey tournament on Fri. Feb 1 (PD for KPRDSB). Contact Jeff for details.
Our AGM will be held Monday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the basement of the Castleton United Church. New members are needed as 95% of our executive is in the final year of their involvement. This organization has a long history of volunteers who continue to privately own and operate the Castleton Sports Fields. Contact any member of the organization for information.
Thurs. January 10th, 2019 our Winter / Spring session BEGINS once again at the Castleton Town Hall. Practice begins at 7:00 p.m. sharp. As usual, we offer a sweet deal to those paying in advance… 18 classes and a CSC t-shirt (while quantities last) for $155!! (a $25 savings) Sign-up on January 10th prior to class from 6:30pm to 7pm. Want to try a class? Our drop-in rate is $10 per class.
Please remain off the rink and have patience. To all we regret the late start for the rink this year, the warmer than usual weather conditions have put a bit of hamper on the start-up. The last 3 weeks have seen plus numbers on the thermometer. Yes, there have been rinks posted as open on social media showing people skating various ice conditions. Not too many areas are like the sports fields, it’s not a simple task to flood and have a safe ice surface with a gravel base and straight sand underneath that when the temperature isn’t below freezing….
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year. Weather is looking like it may turn favourable for the rink to be developed soon after the New Year. We are pleased to announce an anonymous donor has gifted the rink with LED lighting to improve the night time skating.
