    I just visited this rink last week while doing a college visit at Univ. of Oregon. It's location is the Lane County Fairgrounds. It's a wonder they don't have more kinds of animals wandering into the rink!

    One of the more unusual reasons for a competition to stop.

    Doesn't everyone keep a set of bagpipes on them?
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I only have an accordion and a didgeridoo, so I'm useless at skating competitions.

    So do all Canadians carry bagpipes?

    Sure, in the trunk of the car, with my skates, hockey stick, and poutine!

    Actually I have friends whose kids do play bagpipes. Quite brillant musicians actually so they never sound too bad. Always good value on New Years.

    I will have to tell my friend about this story. She will like it.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    ... Come now, Morry. We know this is a new business model, competitions with comedic halftime shows

    Just the men, the women bring their knitting to the rink.

    One year, either Canadians or Skate Canada, they had birds flying around the Ottawa Civic Centre.

    Actually it could give a whole new meaning to "Shitting all over a performance".

    Or "skating like crap".
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    That sounds like a craptastic skating competition.
