My name is Lindsey Negron, I am a junior at Conant High School and I figure skate. I was so excited to hear about the possible opening of an artificial ice rink in Roselle. The concept of plastic polymer ice is unheard of. I think this will be a new trend on the rise, and is perfect for all ages.

In the article, Patrick Watkins said, "I could see some event like 'Stay Cool in the Summer'." I think this is a great idea to expand the vision of a year round outdoor ice rink. I can see it being very family oriented and perfect for teaching children how to skate.

For me, as a figure skater, I am always looking for new ice rinks and one of my complaints is they are too cold. I love the idea of getting a tan while 'ice' skating in the summer!

It will also attract more people to the town of Roselle and is very cost efficient. According to the article, it's about $29,000 for a 45-by-45 foot artificial rink; which is much cheaper to produce than an original rink. It is also cost efficient for families because it is a fun activity to do, without spending any money.

My only concern would be that it will be unmanned. I think this could be potentially hazardous for people who are inexperienced skaters and it may get too crowded and exceed the capacity that the rink is meant for.

But, I look forward to trying out this new rink and doing some spins!
