Today we went to the Canlan ice hockey rink which is located inside the Lutheran Sports Facility. There is a hotel right behind it because of hockey tournaments that they have on the weekends. Inside there are three hockey rinks. On an open free day you can rent skates – Monday through Friday. The admission is 5 dollars and to rent skates it is 3 dollars with admission. When we went on a Monday there was only a couple people on the ice, but you can rent a stick and puck and shoot goals. We only skated we did not shoot goals, but when we looked at the people shooting goals, they were playing a game on another rink. If you are at a tournament you can sit at the top and look down at all the games while you eat or drink. The ice rink also does many camps. The camps are offered all year and every season. When you skate make sure that your skates are straight or your ankles will hurt. If I were you and haven’t gone ice skating before then Canlan is the place you do it. The people are really helpful. Hope you go; it is fun!

The ice skating rink at Canlan Sports Complex is really fun. If you fall down, it is like falling down at a roller skating rink. You can rent hockey skates or figure skating skates. I got the figure skating skates. They are easier to use because they are flat on the bottom. If you fall down, no one laughs at you. That is what makes it fun.
The place is new and big. If you go you should bring your coat. It is very cold inside because it is an ice rink. You should also bring another pair of pants. When you fall down a lot your pants will get wet. There are three ice rinks. There is a restaurant called the Thirsty Penguin in the top floor. Everything was nice there. The people are nice because they ask if you had a fun time and want you to have a fun time. I think you should go. I had a great time and want to go again.
