Tue Aug 23 7pm-8pm - Rink Volunteer Meeting

Lynwood Park Rink Volunteers
Rink Rats and Ice Hounds Unite!

We are proud to announce that we have found a local resident to lead our rink maintenance efforts this winter!

Last year we had to reach far outside Lynwood Village and Bells Corners to find someone willing to put in the regular hours on the rink - and travel time was a huge burden.

But he cannot do it alone.  He needs help!

What's involved?
A volunteer will commit to one night per week in helping snow-blow, clear and flood the rink.  Approximately 1.5 to 2.5 hours.

Our rink boss ("M") will be leading the effort both in time spent and coordination.

A great rink needs volunteers to make it great.

Who do I contact?


Let's do this!

Feb12 6-7pm: Free High Def TV Over-the-Air workshop

Free: Learn how to get free High Definition TV
Feb 12th 6pm-7pm

No, this is not a scam.  Many of the major networks broadcast high definition TV over-the-air here in Ottawa and nearly all TVs made in the past 8 years can get it if you have an antenna (CBC, CTV, TVO, Omni, as well as other English and French channels).  Also, some cable providers are now broadcasting similar signals over their cables.

This will be a quick workshop to

  • Show get these signals over-the-air and (cut the cord)
  • Demonstrate an inexpensive "converter" box with recording capabilities
  • Demonstrate a TV antenna
  • Take home will be a single page with references and resources for learning more about channels available and where to buy tuners (converters) and antennas (indoor/outdoor).
