The final Low Test Day of the winter season is scheduled for early March. Details will follow. PLEASE TURN OVER FUNDRAISING The next fundraising event will be the spring draw, which will be held on Saturday, March 27 th at our year end Club Fun Competition and Gala. The draw works the same as the grocery draw held in the fall. Each skater will receive 20 $2 tickets that were paid for at registration. You may sell the tickets and keep the money, thus reducing the cost of your child’s skating or simply write your name on the tickets. Either way, look for the ballet box sometime in March and drop in the completed tickets. For this draw we approach businesses to donate prizes. If your company or the company you work for would consider donating a prize, please contact any Executive member. For Junior, Intermediate and Senior parents who have not been able to fulfill their music playing duties – this is your opportunity to volunteer and earn your refund. If two or three people took on this task it would not be too difficult. Volunteers are still needed to help out!!
