Cancelation of Skate GB and Change in Volunteer Hour Requirements

Your Board of Directors met Tuesday evening & had to make an additional difficult decision during these unstable times. Due to the ongoing pandemic & the guidelines set forth by U.S. Figure Skating  for running competitions, we have decided we cannot safely run Skate Green Bay in March 2021. We will set our sights on running the competition in March 2022. We know this has been some tough times for everyone & please know we are just as disappointed by this decision as you are. Stay tuned for further information regarding the planned test session scheduled for March 12, 2021.

As a result of all of the events that we have had to cancel these past several months, the Board has decided to reduce the required 12 volunteer hours &/or committee requirement to 6 hours. In addition, these 6 hours can be met by ice monitoring. To clarify, the required 4 ice monitoring hours are still required. If your committee is not meeting this year, you might want to consider fulfilling that requirement by completing 6 additional ice monitoring hours by June 30, 2021. Please note: This change is only effective for this 2020-2021 season ONLY!

We are happy to announce Tiltetown has asked our club skaters to participate in skating demonstrations.  We are looking for 5-8 skaters per day to participate.  Dates available are 1/8, 1/11, 1/18, 2/8 and 2/22.  Skaters need to arrive at Titletown at 4:15 pm and take the ice from 4:30 – 5:30 pm. 

We ask that skaters only sign up for one session as we want all skaters to have the opportunity to skate.  Registration is open in Entryeeze under “Volunteer Requests”.  You are also required to complete the online waiver for the day you are participating.
