New Ice for Bowie?
The city of Bowie has hired a consulting firm to investigate the level of support for a new indoor sports complex that would feature two sheets of ice along with a fitness center and perhaps an aquatics center. This is hopeful news, particularly in an era where local government support for any "frills" (yes, believe it or not, that includes ice skating) is generally shrinking rather than expanding. If you live in central Maryland and think you might skate at a new rink complex here in good ol' Bowie, please take the ten minutes or so to complete the survey. The survey closes at the end of April so don't put it off. I may take it several times!
