I used to skate at the Tulsa Ice Arena until school and work got in the way of my 'career' there. I'd go to the rink off and on over the last year or so, but now that I've graduated I decided I wanted to get back into skating, but when I called to find out the evening hours the machine said they were 'closed for this business at this time.' Not knowing what to think, I drove by the rink and found 'closed' signs on all the doors, the plaques and pictures taken off the walls, and the doors chained.
I am stunned! I just took it for granted that this 'other home' of mine would always be there. I am just hoping that perhaps they're just closed for the summer, but it looked like they were moving out. Is our rink really closed for good? what will happen to all our skaters and coaches?
It makes me so sad, I was just hoping someone might have some info. Thanks!
