Two Old Rinks

One of the damndest rinks I ever played in was a barn in Havelock.   We played a high school game there one afternoon after school and it honestly felt like it was about as wide as the dressing room we got dressed in.   Obviously, it was bigger than that but I do remember thinking at the time how could anyone design / build a rink so out of proportion.  Perhaps it was a curling rink re-purposed for hockey.

And while on the topic of dressing rooms, I remember the old Warsaw arena had one room that was about as big as the bed in the McDougall brothers’ pickup.  You had to get there good and early to avoid sitting in the middle of the room on the floor to get dressed.
