Skating Scene not up to date; it was a novelty once upon a time, but rinks have done for it.
As the rinks consist of four men only, could they not be spared during the Bonspiel period?
On the rinks, which are chiefly used there, the ice is frequently renewed by flooding with water at the close of the day.
The rinks or sides have been chosen—four players, one of whom acts as skip or director.
Ordinarily a match team consists of four rinks of four players each, or sixteen men in all.
In the first of these matches only twelve “rinks” were played; in 1903 there were no fewer than 286.
