Ivan, Brad Todd and I were driving around in Ivan's car one night when we decided to visit the old armory. Of course this was winter time when the skating rink was inside the fence. We drove in, and commenced spinning cookies all over the rink. Unfortunately, we fell through the ice. You know, that may have been the end of that ice rink. Fond memories!
