Thanks to everyone who answered my questions about ice skating last week. My daughter took to the ice like a fish to water. It was a great experience for her.
The ice was synthetic. I'd never seen anything like it. The winter hasn't been cold enough here in Colorado to make real ice--yesterday and today aside, it's freezing! So the base of the rink was plywood, covered in varnish and then wax, and sprayed with something very close to Pam, or cooking spray, that you use on your pans. It worked very well for skates, although it got jackets and snow pants absolutely filthy with wax and oil, during the inevitable spills.
What will they think of next?
