While I have heard some time ago, it is now officially announced:
The rink will be closed for renovation from 8th to 17th of January 2007
They are optimistic that the renovation might be completed early, in which case the rink will re-open on or before 17 Jan. To be sure, the previous time they re-did the ice, it was completed early.
In any case, I will probably have to deal with skating withdrawal for those 10 days! Talk about AOSS! LOL!
