As a fun thing, and being done on a volunteer basis, the $1.00 self-imposed penalty for the shooter not getting the rock across the far end hog line has thus far earned $15.00 for the rink’s general revenue. (Thank you to the member who suggested and to the executive for approving the idea of such a fun penalty.)
In addition to the extra coins for the rink, we have already had many smiles (and extra encouragements) because of rocks not making it or them needing to be swept really hard to get them across the far hog line.
For a public acknowledgement, the Bates household has already put $3.00 into the hog dish. 🙂
