Creve Coeur Ice Arena

After a long renovation, the Creve Coeur Ice Arena is back in business starting Monday. The renovation picture are pretty cool though I wish they had taken a time-lapse sequence of the whole thing.

From the pictures it looks like a great result, and I applaud Creve Coeur for undertaking the project. Other municipalities do not think similarly. North County rink is in its last year of operation, with plans to replace the rink with a basketball court. They had some kind of voting take place, but I heard they will get rid of the ice rink.

If it's basketball they want, then why not basketball on ice? There's already Slamball, played on trampoulines. So why not Skateball, or Iceball, or (with a nod to figure skaters) Lutzball or something?
