Buckets are allowed on the public session during weekend day sessions or whenever there is a scheduled birthday party with the Party Coordinator. Furthermore, buckets will be allowed on busy regular “National Holiday” sessions which will be determined by management. Buckets are to be used only in the designated area. Please adhere to remaining Bucket Session rules located below and at the entrance to the ice.
