Behind the scenes at Kinross

Here are links to four short videos which show the ice techs at the Kinross Curling Rink performing mid-season maintenance work on the ice, with the aim of making it look brand new.

(1) A seventy second time lapse video of an hour-long 'pebble/cut x5' process being performed on sheet C. Go here.

(2) Another (short) time lapse video showing part of the flooding process is here.

(3) The view from the pebble can's hose. Health Warning on this, but if you DO want to watch it, go here.

(4) An unusual view of the Ice King cutting the ice, filmed from the blade! See here. Particularly for Santana fans.

Now, wasn't that all a bit different?
