From Ian H. Taras, M.D. on Jan 27, 2006. "I played hockey there when my team went "on the road" in the  1970s.  It was  a free standing building & otherwise, I have no idea  where it was or what is there now.  I remember that it was colder and  smaller than the Van Nuys Iceland (yes, that is possible) & they would play  a recording of the National Anthem before the hockey games, which was pretty  cool for an 8 year old to feel  like he was an NHL player!"

From Kurt Gunzel of SkatePlex USA on December 6, 2010. “Holiday Skating Rink was  a roller rink that was built in the 1980 time period and closed down in 2009 due to a foreclosure. The facility has recently changed to SkatePlex, USA with a focus on Roller Hockey, sanctioned by USA Inline Hockey.  They are trying to keep hockey going in the High Desert even though it’s not ice hockey. We have a tradition of hockey here even though it hasn’t been consistent over the years, much of it due to a few hockey fans who are still around from the GLAMHA days."
