It’s a cool idea (yeah yeah) but I’m guessing that little space will be packed so tight that if she struck that pose again, she’d take down a dozen people…

As I understand it they’re selling limited numbers of tickets per session to avoid this. Might go in to town later and have a look for myself!

Why so? I think it’s a great idea. Don’t have time this weekend, but I’m looking forward to using it.

Don’t go then peanut. Save it for the people who aren’t miserable and strapped to the D&D table in the cooler months

Sorry Stevian, can you remind me of your ideas to liven up Civic during winter and how you went about implementing these?

Looking at her attack (or is that stack) pose, obviously has been retired from competitive skating for a long time.

Well, she did win the Aus championships* last in 2006 (six times overall?) so may have been retired from competition for 5 years or so. But, by all means, please go down to Woden and give her a few of your expert tips in lieu of wisecracks from the safe anonymity of your RA keyboard! 🙂

* I suppose the Aus champs may be not ‘big time’, but perhaps you should list your skating pedigree so she knows the level of tips she’s likely to get from you! i.e You could have signed off your comment with: “3 times world figure skating champ”, or whatever your creds are…

Hm, I can already see a couple of pools on that ice. I wonder how it will hold up in the winter sun.

It looked all nicely frozen this evening. I suspect they only started cooling it down earlier today.

I wonder how it will hold up when all the drunks in civic urinate all over it over the weekend.

If the drunks are artistic they will do “fairy rings” which will impress Treasurer Barr.

Is the girl in the front this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miriam_Manzano? The wiki article says Miriam is 36yo but the one in the picture looks much younger.
