Midway’s club trip will be to Winnipeg this year. Here are a few important details:
The bus will leave from the John Rose Oval on January 11, 2013 and return on January 13, 2013. You may leave a car parked at the oval while on the trip.
We will be staying at the Country Inn and Suites. Midway has a block of rooms reserved until December 18. To make a reservation call 1-800-830-5222 and specify the Winnipeg Country Inn at 730 King Edward St. the direct number is (204) 783-6900.
The cost of the bus ride is free for each skater but parents and others need to pay. The cost this year will be $75 per additional person.
More information will follow as the weekend approaches.
Ice time for this Saturday has been changed to 10:00 am until 1:00 pm and coaches are requesting you arrive at the oval at 9:20. During ice time both metric and pack races will be held.
Warm up ice starts at 10:00 am and races begin at 10:30 am.
Skaters do not let the short track skills you worked so hard to build this fall fade away over the winter. The Plymouth Wayzata Club hosts short track time trials once per month. These events are free for Midway skaters so take advantage of the opportunity.
Two dates have been published; November 18 and December 16 with warm up starting at 6:00 pm and races begin at 6:30. Watch for additional dates in the future.
