What Makes This Rink Unique

We named the rink — Aspen Rink — designed a logo, and had a handful of jerseys made up for the kids who skate here the most. The rink has lights for night skating, music, and we have from time to time taken out a projection unit to watch television (hockey games) projected off the house.
