Hi, I am writing to seek any tips on ice skating with sighted peers.
I have experience of ice skating previously, but it has been at least 5 
years since the last time I went.
Also all of my previous skating experience happened with my family 
which meant that my mom was mostly watching out for me. I skated using 
very little vision I have along the perimeter of the rink without my 
cane.
A circle of friends I am part of decided to go to ice skating this 
weekend which I paln to go as well. I am the only blind person in the 
crowd and not sure how accessible the rink we are going to is.
Since I am with my peers who would not be responsible for my safety in 
the rink I want to make sure that I take the necessary steps to ensure 
my safety while skating.
Should i bring my cane with me onto the ice?
Any other tips?
Thank you in advance.
