Ice Rink thanks you for checking out our site on how to
make a back yard rink. There are two basic kinds of back yard rinks for outdoor
use other than the kind that use a refrigerant. These back yard
rinks are dependant on Mother Nature and unless you
have an unlimited budget this is the kind for you. Following

Do You have 45 seconds? We are a busy world and this will take a mere 45 seconds.
