Winter Skating at Scooter’s- Need More Skaters, TISC End Of Year Party- Save the Date- Dec. 2nd @ 5pmNovember 17, 2017
Winter Skating at Scooter’s- Need More Skaters
We hope to start winter skating at Scooter’s Roller Palace in Mississauga on Monday December 4th with doors open at 7:30pm and skating starting at 8pm. We aim to host skating on Mondays until the end of March.
Demand is very low right now, and we need at least four more people to commit because the cost of using the rink is fixed and set. The cost for each skater for the season is based on how many skaters commit to skating, so the more who sign-up, the cheaper it will be to skate: if 5 skaters sign-up they will each pay $510 ($30 per practice) for the season for use of the facility, if 8 skaters sign-up they will each pay $319 ($18.76 per practice) for the season for use of the facility, if 11 skaters sign-up they will each pay $232 ($13.65 per practice) for the season for use of the facility- PLUS all who join will pay $30 to access TISC Winter Program.
Please get back Peter Doucet at email@example.com by November 25th to let me know you will be skating. I will contact you with confirmation if we are skating, and I will provide more details about signing up & payment, cancellations & refunds, program information and a few rules, and other details about what we need help with. I will post a message if we are not skating this Winter.
TISC End Of Year Party- Save the Date- Dec. 2nd @ 5pm
We will be holding the TISC End Of Year Party & Awards on December 2nd at 5pm at Morgane & Peter’s home located at 652 Santee Gate in Mississauga. Current and past TISC members and friends are invited to this pot-luck event. RSVP and invitation will be coming soon.
Planning for 2018, Become Involved
The TISC Board is beginning to plan for the 2018 season. If you would like to get involved with running and helping deliver initiatives and plans, please get in touch with me. We need help with running programs (coaching & instruction), events (planning, managing, delivering), promotion (get the word out, get skaters in), skater registration and check-in, web presence (newsletters, communication), and of course serving on the Board of Directors. Whether you can help in one of these areas of need, or you have expertise and motivation to help out in other areas, please talk to us at practice, or contact Peter Doucet at firstname.lastname@example.org
Save the Date: TISC Year End Party & Awards are set for Saturday December 2nd at 5pm in Mississauga at Morgane Echardour, Peter Doucet, and Sophie Doucet’s home. More information including RSVP coming soon.
I will soon look into winter indoor skating options. As the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club is ceasing to operate, volunteers have stepped-in to help organize an indoor program on behalf of TISC.
Skating would likely take place at the Scooter’s Roller Palace in Mississauga either on Sunday mornings or Monday evenings, with costs ranging between $12 and $22 per practice per person. The only significant change from recent years is the skating will be organized through the Toronto Inline Skating Club.
I will look at meeting with Scooter’s management to discuss exact cost for renting their facility and what days & times are available.
Please let me know by October 28th by contacting me at email@example.com if you will commit to skating with TISC at Scooter’s at the price-point and times I mentioned.
Once I have heard from everyone and after I have met with Scooter’s management, I will announce if indoor skating will take place this winter. I will then ask for your commitment (registering with TISC for the winter, paying floor fees), and I will also provide details (start date, which days we’ll be skating, who the programming will be geared toward, exact costs).
The final cost per practice for each skater will be calculated once we know the final number of committed skaters, so it’s important you let me know by October 28th if you will be skating with us this winter.
ALSO: We need help to organize and manage the Club and practices & programs. Please let me know if you would like to become involved as an instructor, coach, or volunteer in other capacities.
That’s A Wrap On TISC’s 27th Outdoor Season, Stay Tuned For Year End Party and Possible Indoor Winter ProgramOctober 1, 2017
Can you believe skaters have been enjoying skating with TISC since 1991?! Thank you all for coming out and supporting TISC’s 27th season!! Even though 2017 was a slower year in terms of races and events, TISC skaters took advantage of practices, outings, and events & competitions in Quebec, Minnesota, New York, and Georgia!
If you’re considering coming out and skating with TISC when operations resume either this Winter or next Spring, you’ll never really know where this great sport will take you. Whether you’re a new skater or someone who’s been thinking of making a comeback after taking a break, you’ll get to skate in an engaging and challenging program. You might make new friends and possibly even make some rivals, perhaps travel to events throughout North America as some TISC members love to do, or hopefully you’ll find your calling and become involved and volunteer & help support and build this great club!
Of course TISC is always looking for volunteers as this club cannot exist without volunteer efforst. We currently have a need for individuals to help coach and with instruction, organize events (races, outings), promote and get the word out to as many people as possible to raise awareness and invite skaters out to give TISC a shot!
Keep in touch – and keep an eye out as we’re looking to have our Year End Party & Awards at some point in November and we will be looking into keeping you on wheels by running an indoor Winter skating program.
