Hope everyone had a good winter solstice. I must admit, that day did seem short!
After all of my lamenting on the somewhat sad state of the skate lane, Dave W. got out there as early as he could, and dragged it smooth with the bladed groomer. He also rescued the 4' rollers and even welded the hitch back onto them!
The skate lane looked a lot better, but it's still off-camber and in need of a lot of dragging passes to get it back to anywhere near level. The classic track was well-established, but still extremely soft, especially for pole-plants.
Anyway, the season is now off and running at full speed. It is already snowing again today, so here goes another round!
