NOTICE: Due to mild temperatures, please respect any closure signage at your rink. It will help maintenance crews re-open them sooner.

HomeIce Text Messages

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 (343) 306-4545 with the HomeIce Rink ID and the condition you want to post to the website using the legend below.

  1. Closed
  2. Poor
  3. Fair
  4. Good
  5. Excellent

You made it to this instruction page from Dr. John Hopps.

The HomeIce RinkID for Dr. John Hopps is 29

To post a condition that says Dr. John Hopps is in good condition, your text message to (343) 306-4545 should look like this:

29-4


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 posted immediately as long as the message is formed as noted above.
