Ice Skating

For a limited time during the Rugby World Cup an outdoor ice-skating arena was set up in Hamilton. We thought this would be a great event to take our local GirlGuides to. So on the 17th October, during the school holidays, we arranged to take about 20 girls into Hamilton for some ice skating.  When I mentioned the outing to a nearby unit, Bombay GirlGuides, they asked if they could also come along with us, so about 9 of their girls joined us also too. It started off a little chilly but after a short time on the ice, they all started removing their jackets, hats and gloves.

 Despite never having skated before The Fashionista gave it a good go and did really well.

Agent Smelly started off a little trepidatious but soon was trying to get around the rink unaided.
She didn't quite last as long as the older girls as she really got tired out after a while.

The Pig (above with Agent Smelly) also had the day off so joined us on the ice.
He was very useful at the playground pushing the girls on the big tyre swing.

We spent just under 2 hours skating and then headed off to the Hamilton Lake to eat our packed lunches and then the girls got to play and muck about on the playground. All the girls had a great time.
