    I don't live in Pasadena, but if I did, I would lobby the city council to present itemized budgets and open the debate to hockey and figure skating people to help define tradeoffs in what they really need vs. merely want.

    For example, if I were building a rink today and wanted to save money, one thing I'd consider is not having anything like a full pro shop. When people need gear, they go to the Hockey Monkeys & Hockey Giants. The only thing they need at the rink is a bare-bones pro shop that does skate sharpening and sells tape, skate laces, & cheap sticks (for when yours breaks at the last minute). That bare-bones pro shop can be run for limited hours and using rink staff that are on the premises doing other jobs 3/4 of their time (available for emergency openings as needed).

    What other ideas do you people have for how to save money running a rink?
    Only problem with that ios the pro shop is a source of income for the rink. They sublease the space to a lcoal hockey equipment retailer. They have no liability and guaranteed income.

    According to a notice at the current Pasadena rink... the current rink will stay open until the new rink is built. I am not exactly sure that is true though.
