Am I the only one here who remembers playing hockey after the ice skating sessions? The deal went like this, We got to play hockey if afterwards we cleaned the ice. A World War Two jeep with chains on it pulled a ice scrapper followed by an ice catcher. The catcher would would swing around and let the shaved ice pile up near a door. So not only did we get to play hockey !! We got free passes to go skate again.

No hassle or worry that I recall about insurance or anyone getting hurt. I can still point to an inch scar on my right wrist. But at least as I recall people didn't blame each other or sue. Post Donald Trump World?
