Hey everyone, I am back at it! Here's some news from Richmond for skating and Olympic enthusiasts...
The Richmond Olympic Oval is hosting public skates this Easter Weekend, April 3, 4, and 5th, 2010.
Time: 1 - 5 p.m.
Location: 6111 River Road (limited parking onsite for $2)
Cost: entry $2, skates $3, helmets $2
Please bring your own skates and helmets to avoid line-ups (very limited quantity of rental skates/helmets.)
As you can see from the crowds waiting to take to the ice at a past public skating event, this weekend will attract plenty people anxious to skate on the same ice as the speedskating stars of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
