The Skins Ice

by Matt Hames

RAMA – A curling club has the plant under the floor. So do hockey rinks. This game is being played in an entertainment center. Meaning, the plant, the thing that keeps the ice cold, is on top of the concrete.

This photo is of Glenn Howard throwing a practice rock. You can see the ice is raised off the concrete. Within said concrete is the plant that keeps the ice cold.

The rest of the facility is kept cold thanks to the air conditioner. This has to be one of the very first games in history played in December with the AC on. Because it’s cold.

Practice over. Game on.
