DRESS & SKATE SWAP – November 17th

Have you or your skater outgrown your skates or your dresses?   Maybe you’ve changed your program and the outfit just doesn’t fit with the music anymore. It’s time to clean out those closets and dust off the shelves.

Basic Skills will host a used Skate and Dress swap on Sunday, November 17th from 11:30am to 1:45 PM at The Ohio State University Ice Rink.  All sale items must be tagged with the owner’s name and the selling price.   Owner needs to provide an envelope for proceeds.  Merchandise needs to be at the rink at 11:15AM and picked up by 2 PM SHARP.

Please contact LeRae Nesbitt with any questions at;
