Sorauren Rink Build Day Dec. 17

Drill lessons: how to attach the buttresses

It’s Build Day this Saturday December 17, starting at 10 am, and you’re invited. Help the all-volunteer Sorauren Hosers Rink Crew lay out and erect the boards for this year’s natural ice rink, located on the baseball diamond.

After the build, volunteers are invited to a fresh-made pizza lunch from the park’s pizza oven.

Volunteer duties on Build Day include moving the boards and materials, installing the boards (bring a cordless drill driver and hammer if you got ’em), and cleaning up.

The Sorauren Hosers begin flooding the rink when Mother Nature sends the signal, which is one full week of below zero temperatures. Volunteer positions are available on some of the evening flooding crews. The commitment is one evening per week with your experienced captain and other crew mates. There is also a Sunrise Soak crew on many Saturday and Sunday early mornings. Contact us!

Thanks to Parks, Forestry and Recreation for rink scrapers, hose storage, water access and permits. Special thanks to the 2023 returning Sorauren Rink Sponsors, who support material purchases and volunteer activities (like pizza lunches!).
