    PolyGlide Celebrates "Christmas in July" Promotion

    PolyGlide Celebrates

    The summer heat has done nothing to melt the passion of die-hard skaters that LOVE the idea of "Bringing the Rink Home."  Since begining our social media "Christmas in July" promotion last month we have been inundated with comments and "shares" from parents, friends, relatives and skaters of all ages that can't wait for Santa!!

    Rest assured there's still 93 shoppping days until Christmas but the Holiday will come early for one lucky skater on July 25th, 2017!! PolyGlide Ice will be shipping out the New 8' X 12' Holiday Lawn Rink to the lucky winner of this months promotion! This will not only be a great home practice rink but will be the ultimate in Holiday Decoration much like when PolyGlide was featured on the Weather Channels "Epic Christmas" feature. (See Here: https://youtu.be/uFibvMxKu6w )

    So be sure to check out our Facebook page on July 25th to see who the lucky winner is!!.....IT MAY BE YOU!!!!  

     

     

     

    Welcome To Our First Official PolyGlide Blog Post!

    Welcome To Our First Official PolyGlide Blog Post!

    Welcome skaters of all ages to the official PolyGlide blog with all the latest news, articles and updates from the skating world and beyond! Since PolyGlide was showcased on ABC's Shark Tank last December it's been quite an exciting run!! The "Proof of Concept" set forth by PolyGlide owner and founder Jim Loughran was proven true as it has become clear to us all that people LOVE to ice skate!!!.....and if they can do it in the privacy of their own home or facility they will!

    No longer do folks living in the warm climate areas have to rely on driving to the local rink (in some cases hours) to practice or learn to ice skate. They can now build their own rink right in their backyard, playroom or basement!! Parents can now teach their children to ice skate in shorts and a tee shirt without having to drive to the rink and watch their child hug onto the handrail looking forward to the first hot chocolate break....lol.

    Check out this recent response to our Facebook post when we asked "How Far Do You Have To Drive To The Rink?....We Want To Know.

    Edward Moore EA 100 miles, 2 hours each way.

    Andrea Aviles 24 miles, about a 45 minute drive, to the closest rink. Next closest is about 40 miles, about an hour. 2 figure skaters. Freestyle ice is rarely when we can make it since hockey takes up most of the afternoons and evenings.

    Marlys Mathiowetz 10 min during the season. They pull our ice in the off season so it's about a 45-50 min drive to find ice for open skate or open hockey anywhere!

    Reed Daniel I calculated I'm not that far from the rink. I actually would save 4 years worth of $ vs polyglide. If you have the funds by all means purchase polyglide.

    Taura Wible 1 hour to the closest ice rink, 3 times a week. Most games we travel 2 hours to the rink usually 2 games a week. My son is 6 and loves hockey, sure would be nice to turn our full attic into nsynthetic ice rink!

    Kevin Mason We live in a small town with no rink so we drive to the next town so about 30 minutes until winter comes and we skate at either an outdoor rink maintained by volunteers or we build one.!
     
    Well if you ask me......that's a LOT of driving AND gas!!
    Don't get us wrong...the rink is a great place to go to enjoy a day of skating but if you're looking to hone your skills it may be time to "Bring the Rink Home with PolyGlide!!"
