What Makes This Rink Unique

Our rink is a man-made pond perfect for pond hockey. My wife got me a snowblower a few years ago for the driveway, but she has quickly learned that pond maintenance is more important than cars being able to leave the driveway. We have a huge box of ice skates of random sizes for everyone to join in, even if they don't have their own skates or stick. There is a a sound system and a large fire pit to make the experience a winter paradise.
