    I am not sure. Last night I took 1 to many happy pills & sort of rambled on. Especially the part about shaving with a Zamboni.

    Don't forget the studded snow tires for the Zamboni. Makes a big difference working the corners & your turns.

    Only in America & this Forum can you go from conversation about the health of a company to shaving with a Zamboni or weed eater. Only in America. von.

    Hahaha. True.
    Change has already started.
    We are hammered with freight and not enough people.
    That's the change.

    If I'm not mistaken, I might think you are trying to get me to disfigure myself. Lol

    By the end of this shift, I will have driven 1150 miles in two shifts. I don't think there are enough hours in the day for me to sleep this off.

    A former Z Driver as well, may I interject a bit of history for the geeks;

    http://jerseysandhockeylove.com/blog/2009/02/14/paramount-iceland-and-the-first-zamboni/

    First summer at hockey school in Thunder Bay, witnessed their open top conveyor system unit in action.

    Rink Rats Rock, there is nothing like jumping on a fresh sheet and skating or playing with no one else around.

    As is most management.
    It's a numbers game. Not freight.

    I didn't say me!, I just pour a little milk on my beard and the cat licks it off.
    Only thing tough about me is my old worn out fanny.

    Keep in mind when I posted about the Zamboni & shaving, I had partaken of 1 & only 1 extra Happy Pill. So, now being of sound mind & body, my answer to disfigurement is 'No Comment'. von.

    Ever turn the wheel to lower the blade & go out & shave the corners because of the excess water from slowing down to make your turn? It was not uncommon to have the corners a 1/2 inch higher or more than center ice. Didn't take long to have a build up. I know the hockey players would bitch sometimes if you hadn't used the edger for a while. It really could effect the play if you didn't edge on a frequent basis. The figure skaters could care less. They did't like the hard ice. They liked the softer ice much better. Ever had to paint the ice for hockey when starting the ice? Or, shaving it with the Zamboni until ya got to the paint, re-paint it then flood the sheet about a 1/2 inch @ a time. It really is an art to working a rink. von.

    Well that wasn't exactly optimal. I'm still buying the Zamboni machine, but I'm doing so with trepidation.
