Annual Banquet News 8/9
The Annual Banquet is rebooked for Sunday, 8/9. Do you have recent quarantine off-ice photos to share? Please send what you have via email to Jessica at email@example.com.
We like action shots, athletes and coaches, group shots, whatever sums up your year on the ice. If possible, please indicate in the email who is in each photo or video (or something along lines of ‘adult theatre team’ for large group photos). This will help us greatly.
Update: NQS and the Solo Dance series has been cancelled for the 2019-2020 season.
A message from the US Figure Skating Association (USFS) in regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic: “Until the rink doors are open again, stay healthy and most importantly take care of yourself and your loved ones. We’re all in this together and will emerge a stronger and better ice sports community.”
