Hello CanSkate and StarSkate Families!

As we near the end of our first session of skating for the 2009-2010 season, the Lumsden Skating Club would like to say thank you to all the parents, skaters and supporters for another great season of skating! Our recent Mom's Pantry fundraiser was a huge success! Thanks to all of you and your efforts - your hard work on this fundraising campaign is deeply appreciated. CanSkate Session II is coming up soon, starting the third week of January (see dates below). We will be holding registration nights on the first days of CanSkate Session II or feel free to contact Nikki or Lizette to take care of registering skaters any time before then.

Some important dates to note:

Parents, please return forms for our Poker Night Fundraiser by the first week of CanSkate Session II to Nikki Kish, Lizette Fischer or any other Executive Member. We are anticipating another successful fundraising campaign and would like to thank you all in advance for your efforts. In addition, the Executive would like to thank all of you for your recent input regarding the skating program - your suggestions are being considered and we are using them to build a stronger, more well-balanced program for our skaters. If you missed the opportunity to fill out a parent survey at the last two CanSkate nights, please contact Lizette Fischer to get a survey. As always, the Executive welcomes all parents to voice their opinions and suggestions at any time during the skating season by email or by letting a member of the Executive know of any concerns or feedback. At least one of our Executive Board is usually at the rink from 4-7p m every Monday and Thursday and we encourage all parents to stay involved with our Club.


Have a safe and wonderful break and we hope to see you in the New Year,

From the Lumsden Skating Club Executive

2009-2010 season

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great summer! It's getting closer the that time of the year again! Our skating registration will be on September 10 at 7pm in the basement of the Centenial hall.

As you all might know, we have lost the concession duties which in turn means or ice time fees are going up quite a bit. To make up for the increase, skating fees will go up by about $5-$10 since I have found an extra fundraiser we can do this year. Before you all start to panic, don't worry because the extra fundraiser we are going to be doing is a poker night at Casino Regina. All we have to do sell the tickets for this event and we make 50% of all moneys made from this event!! We only have to sell 100 tickets so we will be giving each family 2 tickets to sell!! That is it! We will still be doing Mom's pantry as well since this is a great fundraiser that we also rely on.
I can't wait for this season to start!! I just want to thank you all in advance for putting your child in skating and for supporting and keeping or club going!!

I am looking forward to being your club president this year and if anyone one ever has any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

See you at the rink!
Nikki Kish
