Huntsville Town Hotline
In this Hotline:
The Rental Ice Skates that were mentioned in the latest Ogden Valley News have arrived and are available for use. We will lend the skates out to users for the remainder of the season, which will probably end in Mid March.
We will require a nominal fee of $20 per pair which will be refunded in full at the end of the season once the skates have been returned. We don't want to create a hard ship and will work with groups and families. We don't intend to make money, we just want to have the skates returned so others can use them.
Here is how the distribution will work for the remainder of this season:
LuAnn Sorensen Carver has been generous enough to distribute the skates from her mother's home.
- We ask that you pick up the skates between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm.
- If possible, please call LuAnn prior to picking them up at 745-3372 - the address is 7485 E 400 S, which is one block South of the park.
- Give her your appoximate size(s) and if you prefer hockey or figure skates (Hockey are only available in larger adult sizes (8 or so +)
- Leave $20/skate deposit and complete a rental agreement (still in progress)
- You may keep the skates for a day or until the end of the season. Upon return of the skates in original condition, your deposit will be returned.
A couple of notes:
- Most of the skates are in fair - good condition, with the figure skates overall being in in better shape than the hockey skates.
- Please treat the skates with respect and only use them on the ice. It costs $7 to sharpen skates and the town cannot afford to have them sharpened - enough said.
- Lastly, thanks to David Anderson of the Ogden Ice Sheet for his generosity and support of the Huntsville Ice Rink. Ogden ice sheet users, please make a point of thanking David when you visit the Ice Sheet.
- Thanks to LuAnn Sorensen Carver for her help in sorting and distributing the skates. So far, she has put in several hours sorting and is being very generous to distribute the skates from her home.
- Thanks to Jim Robins of Eden who picked up the skates and transported them from the ice sheet. They filled the front and back of a pickup truck.
That’s all for now, have a great week.
