Ice Allocation:  Greg Wallace [(613) 735-5266; grwallace@cogeco.ca].  Greg is responsible for booking of ice for the Club, at both Arenas.  Any changes in schedule are posted in the Arenas, and will be announced on our website.  Please note that while every attempt is made to notify skaters of changes in ice time, it is not possible to personally notify every skater, so parents and skaters are responsible for watching for notices of any changes.

Off-Season:  Greg Wallace [(613) 735-5266; grwallace@cogeco.ca].  While the Winter Session is the main session, the Club offers Summer, Fall and Spring sessions.  Responsible for organizing these sessions, which draw skaters from area clubs.

Fund Raising:   We engage in several fund-raising events each year to offset the cost of ice rental and to keep our registration fees relatively low.  Selling ads in this publication, selling raffle tickets,  chocolate bar sales, and hosting bingos are some of our fund-raising activities.  Please remember that it is you and your children who benefit from the fund-raising activities undertaken by the Club, by lowering the costs of registration, and pease be positive if asked to help out.  We particularly need your help in running Bingos (at Bingo Country), which is the largest fund-raising activity for our Club.  We need both someone to represent the Club, and volunteers for each of the bingos.  If everyone pitches in a little, there won’t be a heavy burden on a few!
