It would be great to have a few more volunteers to help during the competition, especially for Saturday 14th March, so that we could give everyone a break… If you are available, even just for a while, can you please let us know?
Just to say a very big thank you to all involved in our fundraising events of the past few weeks: Aparna hosted a fabulous curry afternoon and Liam organised a great quiz night. It was lovely to see so many of you there and also many non-skating guests!
Both events were fantastic and everyone had a great time. This will be a big help in funding our upcoming Cork Open competition in two weeks’ time. Thank you!

Liam, dad of one of our skaters, has kindly offered to organise a quiz night as a fundraiser for Cork Open 2020.
This will take place on Friday 21st February at 8pm in Counihan’s Bar.
We would be very grateful for any prizes big or small that could be donated for the event.
More info to follow.
The toilets have repeatedly been blocked in recent months and we have had to incur significant costs in order to have them unblocked.
We would respectfully appeal to everyone to please not throw anything down the toilets that may obstruct them. Bins are provided in each cubicle.
While we do our best to try and have a coach present during practice sessions (on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights), there may be some days where no one is available.
If you are unable to remain on the premises while your child is skating during these hours, please ensure that you have checked if there is a coach present before leaving after dropping off your child.
The club will not accept responsibility for supervising children outside of class times.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
As you may be aware, we are hosting the international competition Cork Open 2020 on 14th and 15th March in Neptune Stadium.
