UD is offering a Preferred Skater Card that entitles cardholders to a savings on admission to any 10 public skating sessions held in the Fred Rust Arena throughout the year. Cost of the card is $35-a $5 savings off the regular public skating admission price.
Once a card has been used 10 times it will be collected and automatically entered in a drawing for prizes, such as tickets to hockey games, send-off shows, football and basketball games and more.
"The more preferred skater cards people use, the more money they save and the greater their chances to win," James Kaden, ice arena manager, said.
New public skating hours are from 8-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and from 1-3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Skating cards can be purchased at the front desk in the Rust Arena during those times or from 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Mondays through Fridays.
For more information, call 831-2788.
