DRA Round Top Community Ice Rink

rink

A gift to the community, DRA’s ice rink at Round Top Farm depends on Mother Nature for ice and numerous volunteers for ice maintenance. Completed in Fall 2011, the approximately 60’ x 130’ rink provides plenty of space for free skating and pick-up hockey games. Round Top’s old ice cream shack now serves as a warming hut on weekend afternoons. The rink is available free of charge, thanks to numerous contributions of time, funds, materials and expertise from DRA members, volunteers and local businesses.

Meet Matt Filler!

As the Ice Rink Committee Chairman, Matt’s the one who organizes crews every year to set up the rink framework and lay down the lining in the fall, and take it up and stow it all in the spring. He arranges for the fire department to fill the rink. He also personally visits the rink almost every day in the winter to check ice conditions and decide whether they’re OK for skating. He has also, along with other dedicated volunteers, spent countless hours on the rink behind a snow shovel. Thank you, Matt!
