Pushing the brine temperature up week by week at Bow Island, AB

For the past three weeks, arena manager Doug Conquergood has been pushing his brine temperature higher. His brine temperature was started at 21°F. It’s now up to 24°F.

We’re excited about what Doug is achieving at the Servus Community Arena in Bow Island, AB. He’s been in charge of the ice there for the past 33 years and he knows a thing or two about ice. The SCA is a 60-year-old rink with little insulation; they installed the REALice floodwater system earlier this season but the earlier COVID-19 shutdowns prevented him from finding his sweet spot.

Until now.

Last Thursday, when Doug moved his brine temperature up ONE MORE DEGREE, he tells us that he’s getting TONS OF ON-ICE COMPLIMENTS and says the LINES ARE STAYING SHINIER.
