to our home rink! Thank you to Skatium for giving Germain Skaters special practice times while our ice was down for NARCH. Our regular August and September activities are continuing as always, so lace up those skates and get ready for Labor Day weekend!!
Please talk to your skater's coach and begin preparing for our upcoming test session and competition weekend. You can download a test application
from our website
and mail to Clint Perkins. You can register for our competition on the website entryeeze.com
or from the link on our website
. Don't delay - registration closes August 7th at midnight!! We need many, many volunteers to help make our Labor Day weekend run smoothly. You will begin to see sign ups on the wall at the rink, reminders on our website and email, and board members may be speaking with you and calling you personally. We all completely understand that you do not want to miss a moment of preparing your skater, watching your skater, and celebrating with your skater during their special times of competing! We will earnestly work with your schedule to accommodate your needs but we need your help!! There are many and various jobs that must be done and we are happy to show you how to do each job that may interest you. Please speak up, ask and join us in this endeavor.
We hope you will take advantage of our annual skating apparel sale
at Marsala's. This is a great opportunity to buy/sell skates, dresses, and other skating apparel and accessories. Perhaps just what you need for Labor Day competition will be at the sale! Many of us gather together for lunch after the sale and it is always a fun time. We hope to see you there!
Area schools are starting soon and there is still a lot of summer fun to be had - Five Below is a terrific store in the Coconut Point shopping center that has something for everyone. We are partnering with Five Below for a weekend fundraiser
. During the weekend of August 13 - 15, each sale at Five Below that accompanies a FEFSC flyer will give 10% of sales to our club! Please make a few of these flyers
and share with your friends and enjoy shopping!
Even though the holidays seem far away - especially in this heat and humidity but our annual holiday show will be here before you know it! If you or someone you know would like to help sponsor this fun event we are looking for area businesses to sponsor our event. This business would get a tax deduction as well as advertising on our show t - shirts, tickets, programs, flyers, or on our website. Everyone knows someone, so please consider helping us in this effort. If you have questions or need more information, please come to our show committee meetings (posted on our website
) or ask board members Lynda, Catherine, Kristy, Kerry, or Susan. The holiday show will be a fun event but there will be more opportunities for club membership fun so please make it a habit of checking our website
often - maybe we can make "Website Wednesday" be as popular as TBT!!
