Package Ice: Use CAUTION!, Time Correction & Reminders

The rink staff wants to remind everyone that when the weather is warm, the heat that comes in from the entrance doors creates condensation drips from the ceiling. The staff will do their best to minimize the impact of the drips, but skaters should be cautious on that end of the rink on warm days. Fixing this issue is part of the ongoing updates to the Willett. 

There was a misprint on the Rink Monitor Schedule. Wednesday’s package will run from 6:00-7:00.

Volunteer of the Year: Trisha Hudack

Volunteer of the Year

Every year, the CIFSC board nominates and votes for one outstanding volunteer within our club. We appreciate all of the parents who work tirelessly to make our club the best it can be. However, this year we recognize Trisha Hudack as our Volunteer of the Year.

Trisha not only serves as our club’s Vice President, but she also coordinates our Spring/Summer Ice Packages and is our Test Session Co-Chair. If your skater participated in our annual test session or Red Panther Highschool competition, you remember the snowstorm that weekend. Trisha’s quick thinking rerouted our judges from Chicago to Madison when their flight to Mosinee was canceled. She then drove to Madison late Friday night, through the storm, to get our judges to town. Without her, the event would have been canceled. 

Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Trisha. Congratulations on being our Volunteer of the Year!
