First up we were directed to the seating to watch the first of the races. We were given floggers so we might better support those racing with a bit of colour.
The tricky part was remembering to keep quiet at the start of each race so the competitors could clearly hear the starting gun. Didn’t think we were that loud!
Strangely, the “Ice Cat” – the machine to maintain the ice in a condition fit for racing – was something which arguably attracted more attention than the racing!
Wobbly, but still on her feet with a smile on her face.
Three wise guys.
Three wise girls. (Two are “ours” one from Clarinda) The railing came in very handy.
One the Henke Rink, the experienced skaters are still showing what they can do.
We had a great time. Thanks to the Icehouse, Australian Sports Commission, Ice Sports Australia and organiser Robyn Tribe for inviting us to enjoy this experience.
