On Thin Ice

The Hill School will host its community skating program at the school's rink from Dec. 21 through Dec. 30, although there will be no skating on Dec. 24 or Dec. 25 for obvious reasons.

The rink will be open from 12 to 4 p.m. and from 12 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 28.

The ice will be resurfaced from 2 to 23:30 and from 4:40 to 5 p.m. each day.

The cost is $3 and there are no skate rentals available.

There are a number of rules -- 11 of them to be exact.

  1. Headgear must be worn at all times on the ice
  2. There is no horseplay on the ice surface. (Who puts skates on horses and why would they be playing around? I would think they'd be terrified..)
  3. Skate in a clockwise direction only.
  4. No food or drink on the ice.
  5. No smoking.
  6. No street shoes allowed on the ice
  7. No climbing in the players' boxes.
  8. Parking is in the upper lot off Beech Street only. Cars parked in unauthorized areas will be towed.
  9. Obey the skate guards. (Skate guards? Who knew there was such a thing...)
  10. Clear the ice promptly after each session.
  11. No skating after program hours. Trespassers will be prosecuted.
So with those few rules laid down, ahem, enjoy.
