All Ice making equipment installations have been completed at Iceland and Iceland is now back to normal schedules. Over the last few months a new compressor, new water tower and new chiller barrel have been installed and all ice conditions are back to normal.
As you may know, Iceland has been upgrading the ice making equipment which included replacing one compressor, the water tower system and the chiller barrel. The last piece, the chiller barrel, is scheduled to be delivered today Monday. Iceland will need a complete day shutdown to install the chiller barrel and once the mechanical company inspects the equipment we will inform you what day for the shutdown. This will affect at least one night of practices. We will let everyone know today.
Also, we have set up Tuesday Oct 30 at photo night. Once confirmed we will let you know the adjusted schedule for that night so we can get all teams on the ice for pictures.
The Mite Jamboree practice has been moved to Sunday 10:15am and is open to all interested Mites.
The Sat 7:15am BN game at Iceland has been cancelled and will be rescheduled. The Chiller Barrel installation is taking longer than planned.

Iceland is preparing to replace the ice making equipment soon. The current water cooling ice system that uses compressors, chiller barrel and a water tower, is being converted to an air cooled system which does not use compressors or a water tower.

As a result Iceland will be operating on a reduced schedule for the next couple of weeks. The Spring Pond hockey program will not be affected by this.
