Kevin & Anita Miller (register by email at   Nature Manitoba's COVID-19 protocols (effective 2022-Sep-15): Here.

Location: East St Paul Arena, 266 Hoddinott Road

Time: Arrive at the arena at 11:00 AM. Public skating is from 11:15 to 12:30.

Cost: Free.

Description: We will arrive before 11:00 and be located just inside the arena where you will sign-in. We'll direct you to the public skating dressing room.
You can skate for the full 90 minutes or however long you like. Skating rules are similar to public skating at Winnipeg arenas except there won't be a beginner's/kid's area pyloned off at one end of the ice because there will be very few people on the ice. Skating direction -- clockwise vs counter-clockwise -- will change every 15 minutes.
Masking inside the arena is optional, just like almost everywhere else.

We contacted the Recreation Services Coordinator for the RM of East St Paul to tell her we were coming and there could be ~25 of us.

Lunch: We asked the Recreation Services Coordinator about eating a bagged lunch in the arena after skating. She told us "We have done renovations to the facility and have seating in the lobby for about 10 people at a time."  Also, Grrrumpy's Pizza & Cafe is located inside the East St Paul Curling Club (across the parking lot from the arena), and Jonesy's Restaurant is located 3 km away in Birds Hill Town near the intersection of Hoddinott Road and Birds Hill Road.
