[Ice Skating will be on Saturday night, January 25th at 7pm at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo.]
Hi Everyone, today (Thursday, Jan 23rd) my wife Terry and I went to the skating rink. First, Terry and I will wait out front of the entrance from 7:00 to 7:15 PM to meet people when they arrive. From the parking lot, you will see steps that go up to the main entrance to the building. We will be at the bottom of the steps, on your right, near a big sign that says “Home of the Los Angeles Kings.” (See top photo above.) We will give members and their guests name tags that say “Russian American Club” and you can write your name on it and stick it on your shirt or blouse. (This will help our members know who is part of our group while on the ice.) After getting your name tags, you will walk down a lower ramp/passageway into the building. After coming through the door, you will turn to the right (and walk past one skating rink) to the skate rental counter. You pay for your skating fee and skate rentals there. If you have your own skates, you just pay for the skating fee. You will be given a different sticker to put on that shows you have paid the fee to skate. The rink that we will be skating on is called “The Pond”. It is the rink closest to the parking lot and to get to it, you walk back past the door where you first came in to the building and continue on to the first skating rink. There are lockers near the pond rink where you can store your belongings. The lockers cost 3 quarters (75 cents). The Pond rink is very cold so it is a good idea to bring a scarf, gloves, and a warm sweater. There is a restaurant and bar in a warmer part of the building (upstairs) called the Kings Cove where people who get tired of skating can go to hang out and talk. We plan to have a gathering up there after the skating for anyone who would like to go—the bar will be open until Midnight on Saturday night.
