Skating for the Rest of Us

Okay, so not all of us play hockey yet. While it's kinda fun to watch the Rats play pickup, not all of us have the equipment and/or skills to join in. Some of us would like to acquire equipment/skills to do so, and that means getting out on the ice and skating. A few of us were mentioning interest in a plain old skate.

I know that Kettler has open and public skates for this purpose, and maybe getting together some afternoon for a public skate would be fine, but the problem to my mind with public skates is that the presence of large quantities of small children, most of whom are either skating faster than their skill level can control, are skating fast and weaving in and out, or are struggling along, make any sort of speed drills or backwards drills difficult to impossible to pull off. If we can get enough people, I'd like to see about buying an ice time slot of our own for us to just mess around with.

Who's interested?

UPDATE: I added a poll - please answer if you're interested so I can get some idea of a headcount and maybe price this thing out.
