The Border Blades will be doing a bottle drive in the new year, so please start saving your bottles now!
Date: January 5th, 2019 Time: 10:00-2:00 Place: Meet in the parking lot by the Speed Den (at the SSC by the outdoor Oval)
Kids to wear Border Blades toques/jackets if they have one
We are doing things a little different this year. We are still coordinating the bottle drive from the outdoor oval Speed Den however once a load of bottles has been collected it will then be unloaded right at the Lloydminster Bottle Depot. No more loading a large trailer! After unloading your truck you then return to the Speed Den for your next route map.
NOTE: Arrangements have been made with the Lloydminster Bottle depot to accept bottle donations all year long. Let the staff know that the bottle money is to go to the Lloydminster Border Blades Speed Skating Club. This DOES NOT replace the bottle drive.
Fire on Ice, our annual home meet, is taking place on Saturday, December 1. 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.
