The Kingston ability meet is coming up.  It is a one day meet hosted by the Kingston Striders, and it is a fantastic “first meet” if you haven’t been to a meet before.

The meet is Saturday November 12th, but you need to get your entry form filled in and submitted to Heather Chartrand by Tuesday November 1st.  It’s a popular meet and they don’t accept late entries.

Here is a link to the entry form and meet details.  Note that each skater is required to bring their own helmet cover.

The Meets page has some ideas about what to expect if it is your first meet, as well as links to other meets coming up for the year.
