Remember Family Day?
Tennis on Ice, celebrating first season


Remember Family Day?

Some people spent February 17 on the Rideau Canal and the Glebe Report caught some of that gloriously crisp winter day on camera. How did you spend Family Day? If you are a Glebe student send us a very short story (100 to 400 words) that captures the essence of that day for you. Send your text with a photo to editor@glebereport.ca for publication. By the way, how did it compare with March Break?

Tennis on Ice, celebrating first season

By Julie Houle Cezer

The Tennis on Ice Rink Party that took place on Saturday, March 1 was a great mash-up of tennis and ice-sport sensibilities. Numbers grew steadily throughout the afternoon, making this a smashing celebration of St James/GNAG Community Rink’s first season on ice.

Despite the chilly reminders of the polar vortex still hanging over us, in the beginning of March no less, spirits were high. The shinny hockey was energetic, tennis balls flew over the junior-sized nets and periodic ice scrapings became a co-operative effort. Skaters and observers alike were rewarded with an impressive figure-skating demonstration by Mackenzie Cain and Analisa Love-Tedjoutomo.

Curling practice at the north end of the rink seemed to bring out the competitive intensity in GNAG staffers (bonspiels in the Glebe anyone?). Occasionally taking refuge from the cold in the clubhouse brought welcome warmth and holding cups of coffee and hot chocolate took the frosty edge off, soothing the windy bite to fingers. To visit or revisit the day, ponder the images and check out more in the online gallery: https://www.glebereport.ca/gallery/?album=10&gallery=12
