Hello Silver Blades skating families:
Our Club will be hosting the 2016 Provincial Synchronized Skating Championships on March 11-12. We have 45 teams registered with skaters ranging in ages from about 5 to 50 with anywhere from 8-16 members per team. We are expecting about 450 skaters plus their families, friends, coaches and managers. This will be a very busy weekend for our Club and it will be our single biggest fundraiser for the year. This fundraising will benefit all our skaters and not just our synchronized skating program as the Club uses these monies to assist with the cost of providing the extensive on ice and off ice programming we have been able to offer our membership.
We are asking for the following donations to help make our competition a success:
Pre- Can and Can Skaters (all levels):
2 containers or bags of candy each. We will be using this to set up a Candy Buffet at our competition.
Synchro team members: 1 gift card with a value of $10. (Please give to your team manager). We will be using this to make a gift card tree to sell tickets on at the competition.
Star Skaters (all levels) who are NOT on a synchro team: chocolates, treats, popcorn, hot chocolate, flavour teas or coffees. We will use these items to create a sweets and treats basket that we will sell tickets on.
Please bring your donations to the rink this Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 5:30 pm to the Kinsmen lobby and members of our synchro committee will be there to collect your donations. If this time does not work for you you can drop off to the coaches during any skating session this week.
Thank you so much for your cooperation. We look forward to an exciting weekend of synchronized skating and we wish our teams the best of luck this weekend!
For all non-synchro skaters, especially our younger skaters, if you have time to come to the rink on Saturday, we would encourage you to come cheer on our 4 synchro teams and to see first hand how much fun synchronized skating can be.
Your Synchro Committee
