Fire on Ice XIV Volunteers

Fire on Ice, our annual home meet, is taking place on Saturday, December 2.  Numerous volunteers are required to make the event run smoothly.  Many of the positions are the same as the Mini Meets, and there are also jobs that are specific to the meet.

We also run a Hospitality Room in the OTS room, which serves our coaches, officials, and volunteers.  We are looking for people willing to bring in food, as well as work in the hospitality room during the meet.

To sign up for these volunteer positions, please follow our Sign Up Genius link.

Mini Meet #1 Please Volunteer!

Our first Mini Meet takes place on Thursday, November 2 from 5-8 for SS1, SS2, & SS3 groups.  L2S will have their own races during normal practise time from 4:30-5.

Parents – we need your help.  Mini meets are great practice for the skaters, and they are also a great time for parents to learn the different volunteer positions involved in a speed skating meet.  This will serve as practice for our upcoming invitational meet, Fire on Ice, happening on Saturday, December 2, 2017.

Please click the sign up button below to volunteer for the meet.

Sign Up Now!

IMPORTANT! Also, a reminder to fill in the Meet Sign Up page for your skater so that our coaches and meet organizers know who to expect at the meet.  This ensures the races are even and fair, so all the kids can have fun!

Border Blades AGM

The Border Blades have scheduled their AGM for June 12, 2017

Place: Lloydminster Catholic School Division Office
           6611 B-39 St (Backside of Holy Rosary High School)
Time: 8:00-9:00 pm

We are requesting that each family sends at least one representative who is over the age of 18.  If you are able to send more that would be great.

We have many positions that are open for election as their term has either ended or they have resigned due to other commitments. Therefore,  we need some new people to step into these roles.

1. President 
2. Equipment Manager
3. Treasurer
4. Media Representative
5. Secretary

These are  just the positions up for re-election.  Often we see other executive members step into these roles which would open up their roles.  So please plan on having a representative from your family attending so we can fulfill these roles and have a proper election process.

If you are interested in any of these positions please contact Charmaine at borderblades@gmail.com.  If you are interested in a position but can not attend the AGM you can send a letter in intent to run for a position.
