Notice: The HomeIce text messaging number has been changed to (613) 909-7969.
NOTICE: Due to mild temperatures, please respect closure signage at your rink. 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 Harkness .
The HomeIce RinkID for Harkness is 257
To post a condition that says Harkness 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.
