Write Up:
Today was a chilly, though very sunny day. We met as planned in front of the ticket booth around 11am, with me wearing my day-glo orange fleece :), and the wind died down to make it a great day for skating!

Everyone appeared to have a good time, though Ali Badii had to stop early due to previous blistering on his feet which rendered his skates uncomfortable. 4 of us had lunch together afterward at the adjacent Pavillion Cafe, and the others left to visit the museums.

I got several courtesy calls that morning from folks saying they wouldn't be attending, which I appreciated. I was surprised at the number of no-shows. It wasn't as cold as the doomsayers said!

Overall, a fun, easy event!
