We are still in need of volunteers for our meet on Sat Nov 19. It takes the whole club pitching in to make a successful meet. If any parents or siblings are available, please consider volunteering. Contact Jen or Todd, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Prior to tonight’s ice session, there will be a off-ice warmup and light dryland. This will start at 5:45, so please arrive before that.
- We do not have ice in Walpole next Saturday, Nov 12 so tonight’s the night to skate!
- Daylight Saving Time ends on Saturday, so turn your clocks back. Or… don’t! We can get on the ice in Bedford as soon as the pads are out. It’s a community effort so the more help we have, the faster they get out, the sooner we can get on the ice.
- Please arrive at Bedford by 6:40. For this week, with the extra hour of sleep, let’s all aim for 6:30.
Registration is now open for the Bay State Short Track Championships. This is our annual meet, being held this year on Saturday Nov 19. it’s by far the closest race to where you live! I encourage all of our skaters to sign up and race (and if you’re not racing then you should be volunteering!). There’s a place for everyone who’s been at our practices to race. Don’t delay, sign up today!
Skater Robert videoed this past Thursday’s practice and has posted the segments online. Take a look, the camera was at a few different locations during the practice.
