SCPSC Updates…..

Skate Canada Pickering Skating Club

Dear Parents/Skaters:

Although it is only the beginning of the skating season, SCPSC has a number of updates to share with you.

Vandermeer Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Vandermeer fundraiser.  We raised over $1000 for the Ice Show, which will be taking place on April 9th.  A big thank you to Lucrishua Grant  who organized the event and all parents who helped distribute the orders.  Thank you to  Holly, Brooke & coach Lisa and Faith for placing  large orders.  We will be participating again with Vandermeer in the spring.

Jamberry Nails

The club is going to be participating in another fundraiser on December 1st, from 5:30-8:00pm.  Come and see what the latest craze-Jamberry nails is all about!! Thank you to coach Larissa for organizing.

STARSkater photos

All of our STARSkater photos are posted by the office bulletin board.  Please drop Allison a note in the office if one of your child’s volunteer Program Assistants has done something noteworthy and are deserving of recognition.  We’d love to hear from you.

2016 Ice Show Guessing Game

Each time we have an Ice show, members are invited to guess what the theme is going to be. A poster has been created and posted at the office.  You have until Dec. 14 to guess.   A prize of 2 Ice show tickets will be given out to one person who successfully guesses the theme.  Thank you to the Ice show committee for organizing.  Please let us know if you, or anyone you know, would be interested in sponsoring the show  in any way or if you have any connections with someone who would provide lighting, costumes, etc.  Every bit helps!

Dates to Remember:

December 5 and 6 -there will be no skating due to a prescheduled hockey tournament
December 16-22-wear your red and green, Santa hats and reindeer ears and join us by the SCPSC office for hot chocolate.
December 23-Jan 3rd: SCPSC is closed for the holidays
January 7, 9- Winter Registration dates-let your friends know they can sign up
January 17- Fall session ends- Sign up for our winter session if you only signed up for the fall season

Holiday Spirit
One of our coaches has initiated a drive to help a needy family during the holidays.  SCPSC thinks this is a wonderful idea and would like our skating community to contribute if you are able.  We are going to put a signup sheet in the office and would like to ask each skater to bring in one food item on the list (eg. stuffing, cranberries) so that we can create a basket of food that would end up creating an entire day of  meals for the family.  Please drop by the office if you’d like to help out.  If we get more food than we need for this family, we will be donating the rest to the Simcoe Hall Settlement House in Oshawa.

STARSkate competitions and tests

Good luck to all skaters in their upcoming competitions and tests. Results will be posted on our website and the bulletin boards by the ice.
