Worst.Day.Ever.

So my coach called me this afternoon and gave me an update on my rink....

He says that it's highly unlikely that the rink will ever open again. They're waiting for an insurance check and it doesn't look like they'll be getting enough money to cover the cost of mold intrusion and other renovations so...they'll probably just sell the lot and turn it into a bank or strip mall or something.



Ugh.

Great.

Now I can go to other rinks in the area, but it's not like it would be at my home rink. At my home rink they didn't care what you did on public sessions so I could only skate three days a week for about 8 hours including a private lesson for under 60 bucks.

Now I'll be lucky to skate 3-4 hours a week for that much, and only on freestyle sessions. Not that I mind freestyle sessions but I got so used to the "laid back" attitude of my rink.

Not to mention I don't think I'll be able to coordinate a time to work with my current coach so I'll probably end up having to switch coaches.

I'm so depressed right now I don't even know where to start. I guess I'll wait until after the holidays to sort all of this out. I was also planning on taking some dance classes but now I don't see that happening because the cost of skating will pretty much double for me.

:(

OH no. I'm so sorry to hear about your rink. :(
Can't offer very much except a listening ear I guess.
I still say that it's good to hear that you and your coach are safe.
Hope you can settle your skating finances and your skating coach - if you really can't get your old one, so that you can continue skating. My old coach was an angel and stayed back extra late and added extra classes to her schedule just so that I could have a lesson with her.
All the best, Merry Christmas?

oh, you poor thing! As Jump said, the best we can do is offer an ear. PM me if you just need to vent. Good luck.
