Please read the entire posting - there will be a pop quiz :)

WHAT: Come for a refreshing outdoor skate, with optional beverage afterward.

WHY: Fresh air and exercise.

WHO: All skating levels are welcome but you must be able to skate confidently without holding onto the railing or a bar. There are no railings on the lagoon.

GEAR & SAFETY:

Required: skates, smiles, common sense, warm layers; Optional: hockey helmet, hot drink, music, camera, money for coffee; Safety: Please read the City's "Safety Tips for Ice".

CONTINGENCY WEATHER PLAN: snow storm = cancel.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Prince's Island Park Lagoon ice is run by the City of Calgary (info here). Read this article in Calgary Herald on the rink.

This is a social meetup; it is not a skating lesson. Use the rink at your own risk.

    Is there somewhere nearby where I could rent skates? I recently moved to Calgary and left my skates in Ontario. Thanks!

    Conditions of ice on Tues night good: small flooding on far west side of the pond near River Cafe, otherwise ice is in good shape. See you all tomorrow night!
