New Rink Boards Make Their Cantiague Arrival
On Wednesday afternoon, July 14th, another phase began in the construction of the new Cantiague Park Ice Rink as the new boards arrived and are ready to be constructed.
Now that the old boards lie in an undisclosed garbage dump, the Cantiague ice is completely melted and the white paint and ice markers have been removed, all that remains is a clean slab of concrete being marked for the next phase of the project. The crew meticulously placed markings on the refrigerated concrete slab, noting where the coolant pipes run rinkwide, as the next step of the boards installation involves carefully drilling into the concrete to anchor the boards.
The new boards, shipped on pallets and shrink wrapped, will be set up and assembled in full, only to be drilled down and permanently bolted into the refrigerated concrete slab.
