Well the beautiful weather definitely brought the crowds out tonight as the lagoon was the busiest I've seen so far this season for an evening skate! Overall the ice was in pretty good shape for March but there were a few slushy sections along the channel and the northern half of the lagoon. As usual we skated until around 9pm then gathered together at our picnic site for a spectacular fire and delicious munchies. In addition, we celebrated Jesse's 100th event with the COC, presenting him with a custom made hat to mark the occasion along with his favourite cake, red velvet!

Thanks to all who joined me tonight and your many wonderful contributions to the snack table. YUM!

See you next week!
