Shooting in a hockey rink

Hey guys, right now I'm running a hockey rink (they took out the ice and left the cement for roller hockey) and I've got a short film planned out. The climax will take place on the ice surface (no its not a cheesy sports movie :) and I'd like to know how to get the best results under those extreme lighting conditions (Im not sure what kind of lights rinks use, but Im sure they're an obstacle). Anyone have any idea how I might go about doing this? Thanks.

Maybe I can give a little more info about these lights they use in the rink. They appear to be a super bright form of flourescent lights, though the bulbs are quite big and the other day I was reading a package that contained one of the bulbs and it warned that touching it when it is on could result in severe burns. The package didnt really tell much of anythigng else, other thatn how to install the lights so im not sure what would be an effective way to film in the same room as them. Im assuming I just take my white balance card and press the white balance buton and everything should be fine, right? Thanks

Evan,

Might expand a bit and recommend that you ONLY use your card in this case. Don't get tempted to use the ice or the boards. The ice especially will add too much blue to your balance.

Thanks John and Rob, sounds good. And heres a little interesting bit of info. Did you know that the ice isnt naturally white? They add paint into the water to make it stand out more :).

florescents

shouldn't you also adjust the shutter speed to try to minimize any flicker caused by the florescents?
