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 (613) 909-7969 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 Dunrobin.

The HomeIce RinkID for Dunrobin is 136

To post a condition that says Dunrobin 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.
