You may not understand the challenge to figure skating on a pairs of hockey skates. But our club members had fun at All Star ourdoor ice rink last Sunday. It was the first time for lots of them to skate on hockey skates. At the end, they all can do cool turns and other tricky movements. Practice makes perfect!
Our next club test is on March 8th from 7 to 11:30AM at the OSU ice rink. The deadline for the application is Feb. 21st. Please act fast since the session will be filled soon. The application form can be found on our Test page.
The figure skating community has an opportunity to skate at the All Star Rink next Thursday, January 22nd from 8:30a.m.-10:00a.m. Special pricing $5 (cash only at the tent)!
This is during typical school and work hours, but it is a unique opportunity that we will probably only see once in a lifetime.
If you do come, please know that the ice is not as thick as we are accustomed to – so no toe jumps will be permitted.

Thanks our junior representative Chi for organizing this wonderful winter activity. On Sunday, January 25th, we will be skating at an NHL sized OUTDOOR rink called the Scotts Miracle-Gro Community Rink. It is part of the 2015 NHL All Star Celebration at the Columbus Blue Jackets Winter Park by the Nationwide Arena. We will be skating during the 2:30-4:00pm public session. We are going to meet at the Tim Hortons across the street from the Columbus Union Station Arch at 2:00pm. Other entertainment featured at the All Star Winter Park includes a massive three lane snow slide and live music and food and beverage service nearby.
The test schedule for January 10th has been posted on Testing page. Make sure to check your schedule and be at the rink on time.
