Here is my annual estimate of my skating costs. I haven't done this since 2012!
Rink Club membership (all the publics I can skate, plus group lessons for the year) $600
One 1/2 hour lesson a week (minus 6 weekends a year I'm out) $1150
Skate Sharpening ($20 apiece) ~ $100
Skate gear (replacement bunga pad, knee highs, laces, soakers, tape, tights) $75
Driving Expenses (gas, wear and tear on car using federal estimates) $2100
Trip to Lake Placid----man I prefer not to think about that--maybe $2000? It's the only vacation I take all year.
Being able to pass for 50?
