 If you build it they will come. Brad Greenwell attempts to make smoother skating ice for a skating rink on Tuesday on Auke Lake. After hand shoveling the ice Greenwell used a hand auger to make a hole, placed a new bilge pump in the lake, hooked the pump to a car battery and a garden hose and pumped lake water onto the frozen surface. “Not bored,” Greenwell said. “I just think this will be a fun ice rink.”
