SHINNY ON RATTRAY MARSH
The Canadian tradition of shinny hockey is alive in South Mississauga, with both men and women enjoying the ice on the Rattray Marsh. A plastic bottle atop a frozen log served as a practice target during the warm-up. Players were careful to test several ice areas to find the smoothest and least rocky area on which to play. Of course, all skaters must be careful to assess the fluctuating ice conditions during this unpredictable winter.
