Last Day Skating at Aa-broeken

Saturday, 3-March-2018 - Veghel - Winter gave us a soft snowy kiss goodbye last night.  After cleaning the driveway, I headed to the Aa-broeken for the last time this season.  I took my show shovel with me to help keep the hockey rink clear.  pics (73)

Aa-broeken Ice Hockey

Friday, 2-March-2018 - Veghel - Arjen and I were happy to see each other on the ice.  He asked me to join in on hockey game.  I told him I couldn't play very well.  He said I could be the goalie.  It was reds against the rest--10 against 10.  We won 4-1.  I made four saves.  I felt 20 years younger!  What a great day on ice!  pics (28)

Junior Aa-broeken Hockey on Thin Ice

Thursday, 01-March-2018 - Veghel - I forgot to dry off my skates yesterday--a terrible sin.  I rubbed the blades with a just cloth and some vaseline.  I didn't want to ruin the edges with a stone or sand paper.  I headed for the Aa-broeken after grocery shopping.  I could see the women's Olympic ice hockey had made an impression on these young players.  Even though another adult broke through the ice today.  The thin ice didn't spoil the chance for these young players to practice their skills and have fun.  (pics 41)
