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.

Ice Show 2022: Picture Schedule – Sat. Feb. 26

Pictures will be taken in the Meeting Room at the KB Willett Ice Arena on Saturday Feb. 26 from 10:00 am. – 3:40 pm. Parents are asked to remain outside of the Meeting Room during pictures. Costumes will be available to pick up the day of pictures. Please arrive to allow enough time to pick up your costume and get changed. Tights will be available for purchase the day of pictures.

Be ready 15 minutes prior to your picture time in case things run ahead of schedule. Siblings wanting pictures together can do so at the end of one sibling’s group. Friends wanting pictures together can do so at the end of one friend’s group (this may be limited due to time).

All times are final and cannot be changed due to skater unavailability.

COVID & Safety

For those families not enrolled in Learn to Skate, this reminder was sent from Ann Hylla, Programs and Facility Supervisor, this week:

Hello Families,

Our Learn to Skate winter session got off to a great start tonight. Thank you for choosing to skate with us!

Just a quick note about safety in the rink.

With so many children, parents, and grandparents in the building during our skating lessons, we ask that if any member of your household has Covid or symptoms of Covid, please keep all your family members home for the recommended recovery period.

Also, City of Stevens Point masking policy states: Masking is required, unless vaccinated, in City owned buildings.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Holiday Club Updates & Reminders

A few club reminders:

  • Dress Exhibition January 3rd 6:00-8:00. We ask that you wear masks. US Figure Skating requires this at all sanctioned events. Please share this with any friends or family you invite.
  • We have had some families express concerns with the walkway to the Willet doors being used as a driveway to drop off or pick up skaters. Since this path is so close to the doors that our skaters enter and exit, some feel unsafe having cars use that during our package ice. Please take that into consideration with bringing your skater to the rink.
  • The CDC has updated its Covid guidelines. The board is asking members to be aware of the guidelines and help us keep our skaters safe and on the ice.

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

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!

Beth McBride

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.

Test Session / High School Competition: Winter Weather Update

We have been working so hard to prepare for our Test Session and High School Competition set for tomorrow at the Willet.

Our plan is to move ahead with the event, as planned, as long as our judges are able to get here. We have three flying in this evening and one driving. I will update you as soon as we confirm they have arrived. Since the club is running this event, we are not affected by the school district cancelling activities for today and tomorrow.

Reminders- masks are required. Please help us set a good example. Concessions will be available. Locker rooms will NOT be open, please dress accordingly. Thank you so much to all of our volunteers. This event would not be possible without you. 

I will notify the club via email and Facebook once I know more. Fingers crossed!
