I'm so upset!

Well, this afternoon, my boss called me and told me that they are canceling the youth hockey program that I direct. That didn't surprise me all that much, but he also talked about how adult hockey would still be going on. Since I work at adult hockey as well, I figured at least I still have half of my job and my three older kids, who are obsessed with hockey, will still be able to play, since they have outgrown the kids league anyway. My boss also told me that maybe we can see what is going on in January and possibly still have the Winter League for youth.

A few hours later, I received an email from the adult hockey referee informing me that not only has the sports complex canceled youth hockey, they have actually decided to remove the entire hockey rink from the facility! Since they are removing the rink on December 1st, I'm wondering where my boss thought we would play hockey.

This is going to be a MAJOR life change for our family, since we are so heavily involved in inline hockey. Our only options now are for the kids to quit playing or to travel to another town about 35 minutes away to play ice hockey. Ice hockey is incredibly expensive, so that probably isn't an option.

I can't believe they removed the rink! Do you know why? What are they going to do with all of that space?

I'm really sorry about your jobs. That stinks.
