The SCNV annual banquet is a time to celebrate last season and look ahead to the new one with skating friends old and new. Admittedly, this year’s event will look a little different. For those of you that are attending:

1) Please mail in your payment if you have not done so. Contact renee@scnv.org if you have questions or to let her know that the payment is in the mail.

2) Please be prepared to social distance as you agreed to when you RSVP’d. All attendees will sit with their family unit, adhere to 6 feet social distancing and be required to wear a mask.

3) If you are sick, have a temperature or have been in contact with anybody that has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home.

4) Adults – alcohol and tobacco products are not permitted on the property.

5) PLEASE check your email the day of the event in case we need to reschedule due to inclement weather (and put in a little prayer now for good weather because the extended forecast looks questionable).

Annual Banquet News 8/9
The SCNV annual banquet is a time to celebrate last season and look ahead to the new one with skating friends old and new. Admittedly, this year’s event will look a little different. You should have received an invitation via email on 7/18/20 and all RSVPs MUST BE RECEIVED BY JULY 30th. If you did not receive your invitation or if you have any questions, feel free to contact renee@scnv.org.

For those of you who return year after year for this rockin’ good time, restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic require us to make changes this year. Instead of dinner and dancing in dressy attire, this year we will be outside on a large grassy field with plenty of room for social distancing. All attendees will sit with their family unit, adhere to 6 feet social distancing and be required to wear a mask, except when eating. (If you are sick, have a temperature or have been in contact with anybody that has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home.)

As usual, we will be recognizing every skater, awarding trophies and gold medals, raffling off skater essentials, producing our annual “Whatever” publication and watching our annual video. What could possibly replace the dancing you ask? How about a visit from a former Harlem Globetrotter?! Spinny Johnson will be performing fun and amazing basketball tricks while talking about the importance of education, respect, goal setting, determination and perseverance. Don’t miss his thrilling performance!

PLEASE RESPOND AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (no later than 7/30).

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE KNOW WHO IS ATTENDING SO WE CAN MAKE THIS EVENT AS SAFE (AND FUN!) AS POSSIBLE.

Did you know?!
Qualifying South Atlantic Regional Competition is still on the calendar for September 2020 but US Figure Skating has changed the entry requirements to accommodate skaters who might not have access to tests or time to train for testing. Skaters are allowed to enter at a level either at or one or two levels higher than their current FS test level. This means that a skater who has passed the pre-juvenile free skate test can enter at the Intermediate level.
