Rink A charges by the quarter hour--$4.50 a quarter. $18 an hour. (allows bridging)
Rink B charges a flat $10 an hour. (Bridging unknown)
Rink C charges a flat $14 for three-quarters of an hour. (And *no* bridging)
These are the 3 rinks' freestyle qualities.
Rink C has ice as hard as diamond, but more coaches than leaves in the fall, and freestyle hours coming out of the yin-yang. HUGE ADULT SKATER COMMUNITY...Did I say the ice was crap?
Rink B has 'okay' ice (it's sometimes rough, but not hard), but I don't know any of the coaches. But in addition to being the closest, it's also the cheapest. And ice times that are incredibly convenient. But NO ADULT SKATER COMMUNITY.
Rink A has DIVINE ICE. I know all the coaches. And two hours of freestyle a day at the most inconvenient times. HUGE ADULT SKATER COMMUNITY.
Outside: I'm all Hillary Clinton. Worldly, mature, aware that others are in pain and need my help and sympathy.
Inside: I'm 8.
|Why can't I have cheap freestyle, near my house, |
with coaches I know, with GOOD ICE!
And an adult skater community!
LIFE IS SO UNFAIR!!!!
Sorry, had to get that out of my system.
