The Duecks, located in Huntingville, have made their own outdoor skating rink for close to ten years now, and it’s grown every year. “Usually, I start with the boards,” Daylen Dueck explained. “At this point, we have to piece different tarps together because it’s gotten so big.”
Dueck said that over the years, as the neighbourhood kids have grown and become more interested and able, more and more people have been frequenting the homemade rink in the family’s yard. “We have about 12 elementary aged kids,” he said. “It’s always kind of been a community rink. Everyone in the neighbourhood uses it.”
