This link takes me to the radio station's web site and talks about Nancy but it's not obvious how one gets to the actual interview.

Triangle FSC is looking for volunteers.  If you volunteer as an ice monitor, you get in for free and have a rink-side position to watch.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the Ice Monitor slots are filled and the Door Monitor slots are at times when I definitely want to watch the skating.

I always park in the back/right lots.  Those are the designated "Ice Rink" spots and I'm a conformist.  Plus, there's usually one or two shady spots under the trees so your car doesn't get too hot.  There's an entrance to the facility back there, so you come in near the (less-crowded) bathrooms and indoor soccer place.  (There are windows that look into one of the rinks, so you can see the action.) 

It's a short, air conditioned walk to the rinks' entrance at the front of the facility.  That wide hallway is where the vendors usually set up shop, so it's an interesting (if crowded) stroll.

Sorry I missed you at State Games - I was busy with my student but thanks for asking for me that day.

I have no definite plans to go to AN.  It means rearranging my students and/or taking a day off from my day job, plus driving 45 minutes each way.

Anyone from the group competing, coaching or spectating at Adult Nationals?
I will be watching on Wednesday and possibly Saturday.

If anyone is familiar with the Polar Ice House, where is the entrance for skating? ? At the front of the building , along one side, etc. ?
Is the right side towards the back the best place to park at the facility?

If this is a duplicate post please merge with the other post. I didn't see any posts about Nationals.

Wow!

I confess I wasn't too serious about the hot tub... That was a pipe dream.

Let us see - 25 gallons = 208.6 pounds of water... Too much to carry to my room. Two people share the bathroom. I think I would need to spend too much time in it to soak. A lot of hot water usage too...

What a mess if it leaked! :)

Or the intermediate cylindrical "spa"

About 800+ pounds of water.

Walmart sells more than one Coleman portable hot tub

  https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=portable%20hot%20tub%20coleman

This one

  https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Lay-Spa-Inflatable-Hot/dp/B00NB3P98G

requires about 254 gallons = over 2100 pounds of water.

But I am amazed these things exist.

The "right way" to do this would be to have a form fitting elastisized bag, to minimize the amount of water needed, down to several gallons... But it could still leak.
