Chilly in the morning, still chilly in the afternoon–but at least we had sun in the morning (and the moon at night)! The ice improved after the morning session, although still quite nice skating this a.m.
ICE RATING (from 1-10, with 10 being the best):
10 am – 12 pm: 8.5
Smooth and fairly fast, slight snow cover on edges (couldn’t be helped due to all the WIND)!
4 pm – 6 pm: 9.5
Much faster and smoother, probably best ice of the season thus far.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is the start of the US Long Track Age Group Championships! More info can be found here, races will start tentatively at 9 am.
Reminder to those who usually skate Saturdays; due to Nationals, there aren’t any morning or afternoon sessions Saturday but there is a 5:00 pm – 6:30 session on Sunday. You can see the whole schedule at the SCHEDULE post on this site.
