Due to the unseasonably warm weather in southern Manitoba the last couple weeks, The Forks skating trail turned into slush and was closed. But with some cold air blowing down from Hudson Bay the trail is back in business.
Some open water from melt runoff
The skating trail always has new creative features. This is a huge orange wall made up of plastic orange strips, the sun reflects on it creating what looks like neon lights.
There is always people learning how to skate. Assisted by chairs with skis.
Then I came across the Crokicurl Ring.
Crokicurl combines two iconic Canadian pastimes, crokinole and curling.
Crokinole is a dexterity board game similar in various ways to pitchnut, carrom, marbles, and shove ha’ penny, with elements of shuffleboard and curling reduced to table-top size. Players take turns shooting discs across the circular playing surface, trying to have their discs land in the higher-scoring regions of the board, while also attempting to knock away opposing discs.
