Good Friday morning everyone.
It was great to see so many smiling skaters at our mini meet on Tuesday evening. Thank you to all of the parents, coaches and volunteers for making it a special event for our skaters!
As noted in prior emails the Citadel cup will be taking place at SMC on October 26th and 27th. It is another opportunity to volunteer your assistance, get to know fellow skating parents and have some fun while improving your skaters experience.
We will have a silent auction during the event to raise funds for the ongoing maintenance and sustainability of the club as we are a non profit organization and we are all volunteers. To that end we are seeking donations of new items for the auction. Donations can be brought to the meet or to practices next week. Alternatively you can email Susan Pretty to make arrangements for pick up: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, we have sponsorship/advertising opportunities for businesses to be advertised in the meet program. If you would like your business to appear in the meet program or know of a company that would like to take advantage of this advertising opportunity please let us know. Thus far we have just shy of 90 skaters registered from across the maritimes. The advertising reach of the Citadel Cup is significant.
MARK YOUR CALENDER SMC has cancelled all arena programs on October 31 to allow children the opportunity to go trick or treating. Therefore there will be NO speed skating that evening.
