100 ft tempo backyard rink
For 17 yrs the Sage family have been building a sheet of ice to curl on in the backyard.
Last year we built a covered version and have continued to improve on the more sheltered and controlled space, with fire-pot on the far end. Normally we would share our efforts with others and have a bonspiel and have everyone over to play
. This year is different, sadly. Even our Scottie Provincial representatives are looking to practice on home ice, before going to the Calgary bubble as there are no curling clubs open for any practice!
In honour of the Calgary Bubble, I’m throwing with a Ron Northcott siged world champ corn broom and a sweater from Royal Montreal Curling Club.
