Backyard rinks are a Minnesota tradition. Last winter, hundreds of puck-heads from around the state (and even a few of our neighbors) sent in photos of their neighborhood ice palaces, and Darby Hendrickson even skated on a few of those frozen ponds.

This year, we're doing it again. Just send your photos (information below) by February 15 -- we'll select two winners, and during the next week, former Gophers coach Doug Woog will visit those rinks to skate with the owners for a feature that will air on a Wild pregame show on FOX Sports North.

Send photos to:
Info to include: Name, hometown, email address, phone number (not for marketing purposes -- just so we can contact the winners)
Tips: Send up to five photos of your rink, suggested size 600x400
Deadline: Feb. 15, 2011, 11:59 p.m. CT
