Thistle Rink Memories

Thistle Rink

Here’s a question for ya— why did everyone stand to watch hockey at the Thistle Rink? There is even people standing in the rafters!

Here’s another— do you ever remember sneaking in under the bleachers?

One last question— Do you know what’s going on in the photos with the people in costumes? It’s labelled, “Schmockey 1965” and that’s all we’ve got!

Did you know?

The Lake of the Woods gold rush in the 1890s brought miners and investors from across North America.  By 1893 there were 20 working gold mines on the Lake of the Woods.
