Is it usual or considered appropriate to only offer early morning practice ice for a competition that goes until 8:00 PM at night? There are some high-level free skates going on between noon and 6:00 PM. Practice ice is between 6:00 AM and 7:20 AM. Or are competition holders even expected to offer practice ice? Maybe I'm starting from the wrong assumption. What is your expectation when you sign-up for a competition?
