Notice: The HomeIce text messaging number has been changed to (613) 909-7969.
NOTICE: Please keep off the rinks, it will help maintenance crews re-open them sooner.
With some help from a local developer we have been able to build a system that will allow you to use your cell phone to post basic rink conditions on the website.
All you have to do is send a text message* to (613) 909-7969 with the HomeIce Rink ID and the condition you want to post to the website using the legend below.
You made it to this instruction page from Black Tern.
The HomeIce RinkID for Black Tern is 117
To post a condition that says Black Tern is in good condition, your text message to (613) 909-7969 should look like this:
Note: HomeIce only supports single surface reporting, if you use HomeIce with a multi-surface rink, the condition will be added to both surfaces.
That's all there is to it!
*Standard text messaging rates apply, new conditions are retrieved and posted, on the hour, every 60 minutes.
