Did you happen to talk about the Class of 1965 Arena and the Steven J. Riggs '65 Rink? If not I am sure Mark would enjoy reading the recent announcement of this new home for ice hockey, lacrosse and soccer from the colgate.edu website. Maybe you can send it to him or ask Murray Decock to do so.

Great story. Always proud to hear how our alumni network continues to work, even in the strangest places ;)
