We have had a great start to our 2017 Fall session! Here are just a few notes from your welcome email that we would like to highlight.
COMMUNICATION FROM THE CLUB...
We will be communicating by email and Remind notification system (see more details below) so make sure you check the email you registered with online frequently! You can also check our website at www.fergusfallsskatingclub.com Please also check for important information on our FFSC bulletin board at the rink. The ONLY time we cancel skating is when the rink is closed. If school is cancelled due to weather, the rink closes and we have to cancel classes. You can listen to the radio for cancellations, check your email, Facebook or our website. Notification of cancellations and other important reminders will also be sent out via Remind. To subscribe to text message notifications via the Remind notification system, please send a text to 81010 with the message @ffsk8.

Please be sure that if your child is 4 years or older, they are required to participate in one fundraiser during the season which means you do not need to participate in the Spring fundraiser if you participated in the Fall fundraiser. The Fall 2017 fundraiser is Ole & Lena Pizza’s. A fundraising packet is available on our website. Please be sure that all checks are written directly to you so you can write just one check payable to the FFSC when you return your order sheets. Fundraiser packets need to be turned in on MONDAY, OCTOBER 16TH or THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19TH. Delivery will be made on November 9th. More delivery details to come. Get out and sell those pizzas!
