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.

Private ICE

...for the price of a public session.  I loved it.   Well... until we got in trouble for skating pairs.
EWU arena told us we can only skate pairs if nobody is on the ice.  When there are other skaters we cannot.  They only have 1 hour a week here of open Free Style on Friday from 4:00 to 5:00 pm so that rules out skating here ... unless we get lucky again and nobody is there.

We had a fun session despite a few wrecks - today the scoreboard was even.

Hank :  1

Diane:  1

..but his was much more dramatic than mine! And mine is not on the video because I am having some  iMovie issues... Grrrrrr

I learned the Throw Loop today ... it took a little research on YouTube to figure out the body and hand positions, but we got the gist.

Our next lesson is tomorrow.. so I should have a lot to report after that.

Meanwhile.... enjoy our blunders of today!
