Synopsis

In 1977, three investors built a street hockey rink in western Berks County, PA. For thirty years, the rink operated under different names, owners, and managers. Thousands played, fought, and grew on its surface. Now closed, the rink steadily falls into a state of disrepair. The surface is gone. The boards are rotted. And the players' benches are falling apart. However, the memories live again through interviews, video footage, and photos...all reinforcing how a small business venture turned into a life-changing facility.
