Open Skate – For December!

Open Skate sessions are a great fundraising opportunity for the club! The money goes towards covering ice costs. Not all club ice sessions are used to capacity so this helps make that difference up.

Please invite your family and friends to join us! Please share the facebook posts. And please print this flyer if you have a place to hang it to help get the word out. Thank you!

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS for each Open Skate we host! Help is needed to collect cash and stamp hands at the check-in window, hand out/take in skates and help at the door. Please sign up under Open Skate in entryeeze.
