Artificial Ice Rink

This Saturday from 12 to 6 there will be an artificial ice rink!  The SGA and Programs Board is sponsoring the event, and it will be awesome.  You'll be able to find the ice rink outside the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics and Recreation Center building, on top of the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics and Recreation Center outdoor basketball court.

I assume it will look like this!  There will only be 40 people on it at a time, so plan accordingly or something.  Also they will have hot chocolate.  Woo.

I don't know how to ice skate.  It looks very difficult, even though Ovechkin makes it look easy.  There will also be music!

I wonder what will happen to all the ice afterwards.  I guess it will melt or something.  I wonder if we can take the ice afterwards and make giant ice luges.  I don't actually like ice luges, but I do like the concept of them.

One last thing!  Did anyone take Colonial American History and has the textbooks?  I want to borrow/buy it from you.

UPDATE:  Here is the company's website with more image of what it will really look like.
