Session 1 end

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:

* Thursday, December 17th - Last Day of CanSkate for Thursday Skaters

* Monday, December 21st - Last Day of CanSkate for Monday Skaters; Last Day of StarSkate

* Monday, January 4th - StarSkate Session II begins

* Monday, January 18th - First Day of Session II CanSkate for Monday Skaters; registration night

* Thursday, January 21st - First Day of Session II CanSkate for Thursday Skaters; registration night

* Thursday, February 11th, 2010 - Poker Night Fundraiser at Casino Regina

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

Nikki Kish, Lizette Fischer, Tanis Pattison, and Darcy Knowles
