Backyard Skating Rinks?
Does anyone install a backyard skating rink year after year? The packages we are looking at online make it seem so easy - put together the frame, fill with water, freeze and skate. So I'm wondering if it's really that easy. And what the pitfalls are.
DD skates, so we are considering buying one this year. Yes - I know I have a pond. But it is way in the back yard, there is no light down there, and if for some reason DD fell thru the ice, the pond is 7' deep. So having a rink right by the house seems to make sense. DD could skate by herself, we would have ready access to a hose for watar and electricity for lights. And to think of all the money I won't have to spend for ice time!
FWIW, I'm looking at a rink from ice n' go.
