Our club Mini Fun Meet is planned for Saturday, December 17th, 9-11am, followed by a potluck luncheon for our coaches, skaters and their families.

The format will include timed races along with fun individual and team relay races.  All club skaters are invited to participate.

Families are asked to bring a food/beverage item for the luncheon.  We need volunteers to make this a successful event.  Many tasks don’t require a great deal of skill and it’s good on-the-job training for when our club hosts the Feb 11th Ability Meet.  Positions include timers, judges, door monitors, clerk of the course, track stewards, water bucket brigade, recorders, hospitality, runners, etc.  Please consider volunteering in some way.
