2007 Skating Season of Rideau Canal Opens

It's official - the green flags are raised. The world's longest skateway (7km) on the Rideau Canal opens fully, anyway, tomorrow at 6:30 am. Just in time for Ottawa's Winterlude. Come to Ottawa and eat Beaver Tails! I am thinking of heading down to snap a few pics but we'll see if I am awake or not at 6:30am.

FYI, Get your ice condition updates here on the NCC website. Or call 613-239-5234 for skateway conditions (updated daily) or go to the Capital Infocentre, 90 Wellington Street, Ottawa (across from Parliament Hill). Conditions are currently good to very good for skating today.

Great, but not for me...I can hang a magnet off my left shoulder due to crappy ice conditions (cracks and snags) on the world's longest skating surface...titanium skate-guard for a shoulder, yikes!
