On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.


Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

My Rink Is Down This Week

I skipped skating on Monday since it was my husband's last day home before a trip.  I was all set to skate on Tuesday and have a longer 30 minute lesson when I received a text from my coach.  NO ICE TODAY.  Turns out my rink (which has 2 surfaces) is doing some maintenance.  They are redoing one of the surfaces and some other main rink improvements.  Ice #2 is being used mostly by hockey and club ice, but I may get to skate a public session on Thursday or Friday this week.  Of course this could not happen at a worse time.  I am pressed for practice time in preparation for a June 12th test date.  Oh well.  So instead I went golfing.  I belong to a ladies league called the Par-Tee Girls.
