I don't know about your rink, but at my rink the Gold Skaters are a wonderful support group for me.
One (the Double Gold Skater) came up to me out of the blue and said my second push crossovers were getting better and my mohawks too! And this from a woman who works on her crossovers every day.
Miss Cheerleader took me shopping one day to buy new skating clothes. I wore too much black. Now it's orange and lime green, and pink, and royal blue!
Or our Gold Level ice dancer who sang the words to Hernando's Hideaway with me to convince Dance Coach it was a great tune for the Tango.
Or our former Club President who always was appreciative when I would show up to help with tests and comps.
Even though I'm probably the worst adult on freestyle, they always help me out with suggestions or even a pat on the back, or sympathy.
