    Are the ice rinks still in the Pan Am center in downtown Indianapolis, or did those end up moving? Are there any rinks right in downtown now?

    Yes. They hosted the Adult Midwesterns in March. I heard at the competition that the facility was going to shut down, though. I don't know any details.

    They had a huge school-type public skate come in during one of the events (Championship Masters Int/Nov Men) for the lower rink. The kids were very interested and stopped to watch. The skater at the time loved it (I asked if it freaked him out, he said no - it was great!)

    I knew they were moving. They were talking about that a couple of years ago, and even then it seemed imminent, so now, before I travel and decide to schlep my skates, I ask!

    I'm going to mourn when this rink leaves downtown. I actually purposefully pick Indy over much more exciting work travel destinations because the ice rink is RIGHT THERE.

    The location is pretty cool - even if parking was expensive. Of course we parked at the garage attached to the rink - figured it was easier to pay more then try to find parking elsewhere.

    When I go, I stay at a hotel that's across the street from the ballfield, so I just walk over.

    The show I go to is at the Convention Center, and we stay at the Marriott, so I just walk across the street and go skating. Which is actually why I pick Indy for my trip in the first place.

    It was about three years ago that I first heard they were moving... and every year since, they are still moving...

    I don't mind if they don't move. I like the facility, although it could use some sprucing up. Although it's a lot nicer than some of the rinks I skate in in the NY/NJ area. At least the ice is always in good shape.
