A Note from my Rink Management

Skaters and Parents, MyRink is having problems with children playing and running around the rink unsupervised. Children are climbing in between arcade games, unplugging them and climbing over games. 
Yes they're climbing over the big two person games
Behind the two person games, unplugging them
AND I'm surprised they haven't pushed one over
While we are a family facility, we do need children supervised at all times. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. MyRink Management
This is why we can't have nice things.

I am the Queen of T-Stops
GOOD SIDE, BAD SIDE equally good.
And I've got the whole right foot Tango-stop
Thing going for me
Every once in a while, it's nice to get praise

Skate Repair: You Are Not Paying Your Tech Enough

Videos of what it takes to repair boots that have not been taken care of, not dried off, left inappropriately stored, etc. Now when your tech presents your bill---you know you're getting a bargain, no matter what he charges.

Day 1: Taking the boots apart, marking, filling and finding a use for a dremel tool, bamboo,  and using glue in an enclosed space 

 Day 2 Part 1: After drying out overnight like a drunken sailor returned from a spree, the bottom of the boots are restored and prepare to install blades
