The Sorauren Park Hosers rink crew invite you to join them for the annual rink build this Saturday December 16th.<

The work will start at 9 a.m. on the baseball diamond… which Parks, Forestry and Recreation has  plowed to prepare a clean base for flooding.

Volunteer jobs include:

  • Moving rink boards into position
  • Installing rink boards – bring cordless drill-drivers, hammers​
  • Moving picnic tables
  • Moving goalie nets
  • Helping with pizza and coffee service
  • Stacking a new load of firewood for the pizza oven
  • Tidying up

Chores for all ages!

Forecast looks promising till the end of December. With any luck we’ll have a rink going over the holidays… it takes about a week of below-zero temperatures to get the ice up for skating.

Thanks to everyone who has signed up for a weekly flooding shift. Some spots are still available, sign up with our easy form.

BIG NEWS: Three local businesses have stepped up to sponsor the rink this year: Scooter Girl Toys, Snap Fitness High Park/Roncesvalles, and Chander Chaddah, Sutton Group Associates. Thanks to these sponsors, we’ll be able to invest in upgraded replacement boards, replacement hoses, new signage and other goodies to be announced.
