MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Organizers say this weekend's chilly temperatures are ideal for the upcoming U.S. Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Nokomis.

On Saturday, crews were clearing snow from the tournament's 25 rinks. They then used large hoses to flood each of the rinks, improving on the current layer of ice.

The event's co-commissioner Carson Kipfer tells KARE-TV that it's not cold enough to be unbearable but cold enough to freeze the added water.

The championships will take place Jan. 21-23.
