All information regarding the event can be found by following our EVENTS PAGE on our website. All skaters are reminder to enter online and send their music to firstname.lastname@example.org in MP3 format as soon as possible.
3. MONTHLY ICE FEES
Although all efforts are made to make skating affordable to all our skaters, unforeseen circumstances lead to changes to be made to the monthly billing.
Due to these circumstances, the GNFSA needs to re-evaluate the monthly ice fees payable by skaters as a matter of urgency. Workable solutions are being discussed between the committee and coaches and will be communicated as soon as possible when agreed to.
4. NEW COACHES: Konrad & Yolande Gering
The GNFSA is very pleased to announce that after more than 9 years with Disney on Ice, Konrad & Yolande will be joining the GNFSA’s coaching team from next month.
They are planning to coach at the Grove Ice rink and Forest Hill. They both have experience in coaching and competing, achieving level 6 and 7 skills and Konrad his senior Protea colours. They have extensive show experience with Holiday on Ice and Disney on Ice, including principle performing and choreography. They are also qualified to level one first aid.
The fees for the new season have been increased and agreed to at the AGM and will be implemented from 1 July.
This is however under review by the committee and all members will be notified timeously of any changes.
December, previously not billed, will be charged for in future due to rising ice-time costs and also the added skated hours introduced during the course of the last year.
