On Saturday evening, February 22,, 2014, over 100 members, former members

 and friends enjoyed beer, wine, “moonshine” cocktails and hors d’oeuvres

in the Upstairs Lounge at the Skating Club.

 In addition to the great conversation, food and drink, everyone enjoyed watching

CG Lee and Trisha Hessinger skate during the evening.

We wish them all the best as they defend their Adult Nationals title in March!


On the following Sunday, friends and family returned to the Club

for skating on Member/Guest Sunday.

It was a great way for all of us come together and

celebrate the close of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi!

All forty light fixtures in the rink will need to be updated at a cost of $525 per light.

Each light bulb due to be replaced will be replaced with more efficient and effective LED light bulbs.   These light bulbs will provide much brighter lighting that is quicker to turn on and off (currently it takes 5-10 minutes for the bulbs to warm up and cool down!), and is more energy efficient.  It is also expected that these bulbs will last longer, up to 15 years before they will need to be replaced again.
