Spring Fundraiser Deadline Extended!!
Our club's spring fundraiser last year raised the money needed to hold our Labor Day Competition and test session. Our club is excited to promote our fun annual banquet in the spring, we are in the planning stages to host a special guest coach clinic, and hopefully a skill clinic this summer!  Looking ahead, we are excited to participate in Skate For Hope and hold a fabulous Labor Day Competition and test session.  We need you to make these events a reality - we cannot have these wonderful opportunities without your help!
This year our spring fundraiser will be Family Events for a Year!  Club families and coaches are strongly encouraged to participate in this year's fundraiser to promote all of our club activities. We will have two 'Family Events for a Year' raffle packages valued at $1000 each! Each skater family is strongly encouraged to donate gift cards to area attractions or restaurants totaling $50. This could be one card or several.

 If you have any questions, please ask any board member or contact Susan by email at
You may give your gift card donations to any board member in an envelope with your name printed on the front from now until March 21st! (The deadline has been extended from March 15th!)

Thank you so much for your participation and generosity!!
