HydroWorx Headed to Happy Valley
This weekend a group of 60 HydroWorx employees, friends and family made the journey to Happy Valley for the Nittany Lions’ first home football game of the season. Thankfully the rain held off until our drive home and we were able to watch the Penn State football team seal their first home victory of the season (21-3) against the Zips of Akron.
It was a fun day with plenty to eat and drink and enough games, like Corn hole, Can jam and football, to keep us occupied for the whole weekend.
It seems a great time was had by all as the bus ride home was a quiet one filled with exhausted, sleepy tailgaters.
In addition to watching the Nittany Lions football team at Beaver Stadium, some of us got an inside look at the newest facility built on campus, Pegula Ice Arena; home to 3 HydroWorx pools, including a HydroWorx 1200 Series pool, PolarPlunge and ThermalPlunge pools. The Pegula Ice Arena opened its doors to the public on October 11, 2013 after a year and a half construction. This state of the art facility features two ice surfaces: a main rink, home to Penn State’s varsity hockey programs, and a community rink. The main arena seats 5,782 fans, and the community rink seats 300 fans. The facility was brought to fruition by an initial $88 million donation – the largest in University history – from Terry and Kim Pegula, who, through their gift, helped Penn State realize its goal of competing in Division I hockey.
Congrats to the Nittany Lions on their first home victory! We are proud to be a part of this wonderful facility!
