I visit Penrith a lot. I generally attribute the rise of the smug to number of willing juniors as it’s a good place to raise kids. it’s taken awhile to get their recruiters on song. Normally they lose a lot of talent. Here below is a photo of the Penrith Ice skating Palace taken on Saturday. Cheap and fun. Not too many divas and show offs compared to other rinks. If you want no frills skate, this is it. The most accomplished skater I saw, looked to be about 9 lol. All that spinning. I was throwing up watching her. I think my kids and friends, spent more time falling over. So long as we can keep the area affordable, the smug will be strong. And if you think this smug side is good, there’s another generation coming. You trip over promising young juniors all over the place here. It’s a factory.
