Halloween - dress up for your lesson!
It is that time of year again! Halloween falls on this Friday this year. Everyone can come in their costumes for their skating lesson on Friday, Oct 31 on the East side at Stewart Hurley, and on Saturday, Nov 1 on the West side at the Peter Murray arena. For safety be sure that your costume does not drag on the ice, and that you have good visibility (so no masks that could block your view). If you'd rather not dress up, come dressed in black and orange. We look forward to seeing you all in your costumes. Happy Halloween!
