With winter conditions walking outside in skate guards is a very dangerous practice.

We are doing our best to keep the salt applied to the parking lots and fire exits.

With ice storms and snow parents really need to consider if it is safe to send their child into the arena and exit from the arena wearing skate guards. This practice would be worse than wearing dress shoes in the winter. The skate guard really has no ability to grip in the ice and snow. They are totally designed to protect a skate blade in an indoor environment.

We did apply sand to the gravel lot today and we are doing our best to ensure the safety of all. I would request that people really help to ensure safety and wear winter boots to enter and exit the building.
