Hi Derrick,

That Rink Closing is a real Shame. I've seen a number of Rinks close under similar circumstances. Someone passes, and the others give up, don't know what to do, or are just not "Into" the Business. Rink Closed. Everybody Looses.

IF, the Facility is not Crumbling and stable, and the Floor is OK, or easily repaired, then it's So Sad that they can't find someone with the Skills and Knowledge to Manage the Rink back to Profitability. We need More Rinks, not Fewer.

Just so SAD to loose that Lady, and the Rink too.

Harold

Hi Holiday Guy,

Crap, that's the Rink I Videoed Fancy & gotsk8's Wedding in, back June 2014.

That's a NICE place, what a Bummer.

A local Rink (B & D South in Independence, Mo.) got nailed by bad weather a couple of weeks ago. Took part of the Roof and wiped out the Floor - will be a few months to repair at close to 1 million $$.

I know the feeling sad Sandy flooded Roller Jam here in New York/Jersey areas but was saved I hope they can do the same for Spinnationsskate too.
