"Here are photos from Sunday, December
18th (the daytime shot) and Thursday, December 22nd (the
nighttime shots). The daytime picture is my wife Debbie, our
daughter, Diana and the old guy is me. The nighttime shots
include the three of us plus son, Bob, his girlfriend,
Stephanie, Craig and Connor McClory (in the Penn State
jerseys), our nieces, Carrie and Abbie, and nephew, John.
The rink has been big time fun. Feel free to use these
pictures in the promo and my quotes, if you'd like. Even in
the thaw that we are currently experiencing, the ice is
"hanging around" and I have no doubt that in the next cold
snap, we'll be ready to go in a couple of days. So we are
really satisfied. Thanks again."
"The liner has been
super. Traditionally in Northwest Indiana (we're just below
Chicago), you can't skate outdoor until after Christmas.
Yesterday was already the 12th day that we have been able
to use the rink. And the ice has been great. The white liner
really makes that much of a difference. It got up to
40 degrees yesterday in the daytime and we still got in 2
hours of hockey last night with 9 people. We'll send
pictures later in the season, but I'm convinced that I've
made the right decision in going through you. I too hope
that you guys and your families have a wonderful Christmas
Holiday and a great 2006! Thanks again. Al S."
"We will get you some
digital pictures next week. There are some great night
shots. I'm 56 years old and have been making backyard ice
since I was about 10, so I guess you can say that I've got
some experience under my belt. This system is the easiest
that I've ever worked with. Sometimes it's just me, or with
my wife (we're attorneys by day, backyard winter hockey
enthusiasts by night), or with our adult kids, or with about
10 people total. Every day has been fun and good ice has not
been an issue. Yesterday was day 14 and even though we're
now in a thaw in Chicagoland , I believe that the rink will
be up and going as soon as it gets cold again. Better yet ,
no leaks! Playing ice hockey in our family has always been a
big tradition; this system has made the carrying on of that
tradition much easier. And you can quote me!"
