Due to anticipated low turnout, Spring break, and the need to reserve funds for 2013 Fall season ice time, we will likely just have one more practice session on Sunday, April 14th, from 9:00am-10:00am.
We just received word that the The Puget Sound Speedskating Club will host the 2013 Washington State Championship competition on Sunday, March 31, 2013, from 1:00 until 5:30 p.m. at the rink in Tacoma, WA.¬† Although it is a State Championship, this competition is open to all skaters.¬† Entry forms available for download here:¬†2013 State Champs Info (1) 2013 State Championships (2)

Along with updating the website, getting an account set up on PayPal has been on my “to do” list for quite some time. Still not 100% completed, but getting there. I just have to get the “donate” button on our website and Facebook page.¬† For now, here is a link where you can donate directly to our club – click here.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and can provide you with a receipt for your tax-deductible donation. Thanks for your support! We also welcome suggestions for fundraising ideas.¬† Today I received an email from the Whatcom Speedskating Club in Bellingham, Washington about the auction they are having to sell items to raise money for their club. Brilliant idea!

We’ll be skating the following dates in March:
Both dates we will skate at the usual 9:00am-10:00am timeslot.¬† Please see our newsletter for the details.
Also, we’d like your input on scheduling dates for April. Please click on this link to provide us with your preferred dates.
Sadly, our club hasn’t been able to afford to extend practice sessions through the summer months due to funding limitations and the cost of ice time.¬† As always, if you have ideas for fundraising, please send us an email.
Also, we are a nonprofit organization so we do accept donations via Paypal.¬† The link will be up on our site soon!

We had to say – not good-bye, but rather “see ya later” to our friend Max, who has skated with us on the ice for – how many years now?
We wish him the very best – see our latest email newsletter here.

Thanks so much to all of our wonderful volunteers who worked tirelessly to make our Bridge Pedal fundraising activity a success:
Max Diener (and his Dad)
Colm, Patty & Casey Brennan
Lisa, Chris & Becky Sundstrom
Now since we raised some funds, it’s time to take to the ice once again.¬† Our first session of the 2012 Fall season will be Sunday, October 7th, from 10:30am-11:30am.
Please remember to arrive early so you’re ready to jump on the ice right at 10:30! Also, to help get the mats on the ice.
Sessions are $15 per person, payable in cash or check to Mountain View Speedskating. We’ll collect each session.
We have a limited inventory of loaner skates (first come first served), so if you don’t have your own skates, please come a few minutes early to try them on.
You are required to wear long sleeves, pants, gloves and a helmet. Knee and shin pads are also highly recommended.
Please park by the Rib City Grill, which is the next building East of the rink. The parking in front of the rink is used for the church next door on Sundays.
See you soon!

Hey skaters, hope you are enjoying the summer so far! Looking forward to skating again with you this Fall. As you know, in order to afford ice time for our practice sessions, we need money in the bank. One of our favorite fundraising activities is to volunteer for the Providence Bridge Pedal on Sunday, August 12.
We have 4 crews this year:
1. Coning (placing prior to the ride, removing after the ride) along Macadam (covered!)
2. Coning along McLoughlin (need one more person)
3. Placing plywood on the southernmost lane of the Hawthorne Bridge on Saturday, August 11 (need 5 more)
4. Removing plywood from the Hawthorne Bridge on Sunday, August 12 following the ride. (need 5 more)
This is a much-needed fundraiser and earns our club quite a bit of cash. So if you are free and want to help, please email me!¬† I hope to hear from you soon.¬†¬† Thanks for your help!
