2019 Sorauren Rink was brought to you by…

The rink is closed. Long live the rink!

Through frozen pipes, bitter wind chills, thaws, snow storms, and all over again, the volunteer Sorauren Hosers Rink Crew kept the natural ice going well into March. The 10th season of the “modern” era was a stand-out.

As we bid farewell to the 2019 edition, some thank-yous:
