End of the Season Dinner and Meeting

Monday, March 28th, is our last "on ice" session for this season. 

During the ice session (while kids are playing, er, I mean skating) we will meet in the party room and review the season, answer any questions concerning the club...and best of all, discuss our "off ice dry-land training" for May and June, and our 2016-2017 season. We have dates, costs, and other information to present!

After the ice session we will have pizza and drinks in the party room while we collect skates and check for boot and blade sizing/length for the upcoming season. Feel free to bring something additional to share if you would like.

We would like everyone to come if at all has been a GREAT season,

Rob, Susan and Catherine

Skate-a-thon and End of the Year Bash

SKATE-A-THON – On March 26 at the Utah Olympic Oval, we will be having our first ever Skate-A-Thon!!!  Every skater who wants to participate will need to get pledges in advance.  Pledgers can either give an amount per lap skated or a lump sum.  On the day of the event you will have one (1) hour to skate as many laps as you can. The start time is scheduled for 4:15... Please be ready to skate!  We will use transponders to track laps.  At the end of the hour we will have the total laps calculated for everyone.  Then the skaters will need to inform the pledgers how much they owe.  Initially all of the donations will go to the association but can be used BY THE PERSON WHO EARNED THEM for things like summer camp registration, entry fees, travel to out of state competitions, and uniforms.  WSSA will retain 5% and the member club will retain 20%.  The remaining 75% of the money can be used by the skater who earned it for the things listed above. 
(as an FYI for those that do not know, the Oval hosts a week long speed skating summer camp and this year it will be culminating with the Desert Classic Short Track Races. Tentative Dates: camp August 8-12, races August 13-14)
Year End Bash – The Year End Bash is scheduled for March 26.  We realize that this is Easter weekend but it is the only weekend it is possible to host it at the oval this year.  We apologize to anyone who might be effected by this.  In case you don’t remember or don’t know…the Year End Bash is an awesome opportunity to let loose at the oval.  There is no cost and all of the oval’s games, sports, movies, etc. are open to us along with the hockey and figure skating club.  And of course…the sleepover.  Bring your tents and sleeping bags.
