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!

Ice Show 2022: Volunteer Sign-Up / Updates

The Ice Show Volunteer Sign-Up is available here. Just a reminder that there is a $50 an hour fee for any volunteer hours not completed (4 hours for one skater, 6 hours for multiple skaters). Each family, whose skater is participating, must complete one hour of time at the ice show (2 hours for multiple skaters). Ice Show picture day hours do count towards your Ice Show requirements. All hours must be completed or paid for prior to being eligible to register for any Spring/Summer ice. If no Spring/Summer ice is requested, the fee will need to be paid before your skater is eligible for package ice in the fall.

Purchases, Volunteer Coordinators, and Riverfront Dates

New Purchase Policy – all club members need preapproval for any purchase they wish to bill to the club. Please submit a Permission for Purchases form located on the website (Club Information– Forms). This excludes items that will be billed to skaters (i.e. costumes). If approval is not given, club members will be responsible for the purchase amounts. 

A reminder of an existing policy – club members wishing to be reimbursed for a preapproved purchase should complete an Expense Reimbursement FormThis can also be found on the website (Club Information- Forms).

New Request – as we say goodbye to another large group of seniors, we also prepare to lose a lot of dedicated volunteers. In an effort to make this transition smooth and update policies and procedures, we are asking all volunteers to create a Checklist of Responsibilities associated with their specific roles. If you are listed as a volunteer here, we ask you to work on creating this checklist. Please include a timeline of tasks, necessary contacts, budget items, and all other pertinent information a new volunteer may need stepping into that role. Please email your checklist to cifscstevenspoint@gmail.com. It will be uploaded to our Google Folder. If you are comfortable with Google docs, the folder can be shared with you so you can keep the form updated. If you prefer to update the form and send it to the club at the end of every season, that is fine too. Please submit all checklists by the end of June. 

Riverfront is a great opportunity to earn credits towards your skating costs. This year Riverfront Rendezvous will be held July 1-3. Save these dates and keep an eye out for sign-up information in May.

Dress Exhibition: Announcers / Volunteers Found!

Announcers Found! THANK YOU!

Hello Club Members!

Thank you for your consideration to announce at our upcoming annual Dress Exhibition.

We do have two members who have graciously agreed to fill the shift.

Remember that there will be concessions so tell your friends and family to join us on January 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 PM and cheer on their skater!

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Merry Christmas!

Dress Exhibition – Announcers Needed

We are still in need of two announcers for our upcoming Dress Exhibition to be held on January 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

Remember that this DOES count towards your volunteer hours and the shift could be split if you are only able (and willing) to do one hour.

Announcer responsibility is to announce each skater by name and play their music. Very similar to the rink monitor responsibility.

Please contact Beth McBride if you have any questions or if you are interested in helping out on the night of our show.

Merry Christmas!!
