At one time, a lot of the Prep Schools here in Newengland had outdoor rinks. Some would frame around them with staging pipes, then cover that with canvas fabric, like that used by the military for their tents. Some would build a permanent roof over the ice and leave the sides open. Parents paid $35,000 + a year for their kid's to have the privilege of going there. Now most have spent millions building "sport complexes". Gordon College had a rink completely open and you had to dress in a shed. They were a D III Program. Now the rink and team are long gone. If they build it will they come? I to add that quote

you would never get the chance to play for the team, you probably would ***** out and quit but if you were a real player you would play for a chance to keep the dream alive .. that is, if you would make it past tryouts without pissing yourself and crying like a girl the first time you get checked
