To the editor:
We must weigh in wholeheartedly favoring Patrick Kelly’s proposal to lease the Sheffield Oval.
We feel the Oval will have a better and more useful life as Patrick’s number one priority, rather than one of many venues demanding ORDA staff’s attention.
Five years ago we took up speedskating and it was only then that I realized Heaven is a sunny winter morning on the oval.
During those years our family has made two to five weekend trips each winter. We’ll continue to do so as long as there’s ice on which to skate.
We feel Patrick’s plan, his commitment, his qualifications and his contacts will give the Sheffield Oval a new lease on life.
