We are having some laughs with the volunteer penalty (donation) of $1.00 for the shooter not getting his/her rock across the far hog line — and we are also generating some extra revenue for the rink. As you often hear me state, dues alone ($10,805) do not cover the necessary expenses (approx. $29,000) for the yearly operation of the rink.
Today I deposited $49.05 (Hog dollars) into the rink’s bank account with a $2.00 float remaining in the “Hog” container. Where that nickel originated is a mystery to me.
Thank you to all who are light on your weight and are willingly tossing in your dollar(s) for the enjoyment of others. 🙂
