Mother Nature made the natural ice rink challenging this year, with yo-yo temperatures above, below, above, then below again, and repeat. Still, the Sorauren Hosers Ice Rink Crew persevered and was able to get a few good weekends, including Family Day.Continue reading
All we need now is consistent below zero temperatures.
The Sorauren natural ice rink is ready for flooding now that members of the all-volunteer Sorauren Hosers Rink Crew have erected the boards.
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:
The Sorauren Farmers Market is always extra-special when it falls on a holiday Monday, and that’s the certainly the case this coming Family Day, February 18.
Drop by the Market indoors at the Sorauren Fieldhouse for fun family activities in addition to shopping from great local farmers and vendors.
The Market runs every Monday from 3 – 7 pm at the Fieldhouse, 50 Wabash Avenue.
UPDATE: Come early at from 2 – 4 pm to enjoy the Family Day Skate at the Sorauren Rink, hosted by MPP Bhutila Karpoche. Free hot chocolate!
Game on! Cheer for your side in the First Annual Sorauren Park “Celebrity Shinny Match” this Saturday, February 2 starting at 1 pm.
The all-volunteer Hosers have done an incredible job this week, clearing up after the storm and fighting the polar vortex (and frozen hoses) to keep the rinks flooded.
Drop by the info booth to learn what’s happening at the park and The West End Phoenix newspaper, and how you can get involved in park life and consultations for the new Wabash Community Centre. Pick up some cool WEP and Sorauren Park merch.
Note there are two skating pads at the rink, so public skating will be available at all times during shinny.
PS: Forecast calls for an almost tropical -2 deg C, just enough to keep the rink — but not spirits — frozen.
