The problem was, I had forgotten this rink was serious about disco skate. My rink has flashing lights but doesn't turn the regular lights down and it attracts an older crowd (15 to 20 plus parents with kids). This other rink attracts 11 year olds to 15 year olds and it turns.the.lights.down. It was just like Dundee! Only, much, much darker. (And 50% of the perceived darkness is probably my age related eye degeneration; I bet to the kids it's as bright as twilight is to me)
|This is actually Dundee!|
When I got off the ice I actually got a compliment from an adult by stander. "You were skating so well, and I felt so sorry for you with so many kids running amuck."
What can you do? It's hard to find ice time, I gotta skate.
I did get the DJ to play some Queen so that was cool.
Next time I have to go to Disco skate I'll ask for Ina-Gadda-da-vida, all 17 minutes of it.
