This is the second year in a row where weather has not cooperated with the tournament forcing organizers to go to "plan B'.
Nine man-made ice rinks are being groomed, tents are being raised and barricades are being set up.
The rinks will be tested by skaters Friday. The big competition kicks off Saturday. There will also be food and live entertainment.
