CNYRD beats the heat, thank you ROME!
It's no secret that Central New York is experiencing quite the heat wave in the past few days. It was over 90F by noon on Tues 7/6, and we knew that our arena practice space was not going to be so nice to skate in later that evening for newbie practice. The vets were planning on doing some off-skates work at the arena, too.
Thanks to the awesome folks at the Parks and Recreation Dept in the city of Rome, we were able to swap our normal track time for pool time at the city pool right outside the arena doors.
It was a great way to end the hot, hot day, and was great exercise in place of skating.
A big thank you to Mike and the City of Rome, and also to our lifeguards who stayed late to let us swim, and had no idea what to do with a group of 30 rowdy rollergirls (and guys) (but we listened to them better than our own referees....hmmmmm:)
