***REMINDER:  The parking lot is very dark at night.  Remember that the skaters are getting dressed in the parking lot!  There have been a lot of complaints regarding speed and driving through parking spaces.  Please drive cautiously while in the Valley Sports parking lot.  Pay close attention while driving near the exit door.

Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and kindness.
