Alain Quintard and I have been working to set-up an indoor skating program for this Winter. We have arranged a meeting with Scooter’s Roller Palace ownership next week. The discussion at that meeting will determine how many days & hours are available and what the cost structure will be.
Managing the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club, or any Club, is a big responsibility and we need help in order to move ahead with the Club this year.
In order to move forward with an indoor skating program for this Winter, we will will need help and volunteers to run and manage the Club. There is a list of responsibilities, tasks, jobs, and items that need to be covered.
- OPENING THE RINK: main door, alarm deactivation, opening lights
- FLOOR CLEANING: floor cleaning: vinegar inventory control, purchasing vinegar, dusting rags, washing rags, vinegar spraying, setting up brooms, dry mopping, wet mopping
- PRACTICE SET-UP: installing mattress, benches, putting out cones, installing chairs
- PROGRAM: coaches
- CLUB ADMINISTRATION: put out sing-in sheet, collect waivers, collect money, collect registration forms, deposit money in bank account, track budget and finances, track membership, first-aid kit responsibility, update website, manage e-mails and communications
- PRACTICE TAKE-DOWN: Storing chairs, storing cones, storing mattresses and bench, storing wet rags, storing wheel cleaning rags
- RINK LOCK-UP: turning off lights, alarm activation, close and lock main door
In order for us to proceed with planning, please let us know the following by November 5th, as we meeting with Scooter’s management at night on November 6th. You can e-mail me at email@example.com
- 1) Will you be skating indoors with the Club this year? How many times a week?
2) Based on the list above, how are you able to pitch-in?
Once we receive feedback, we will be able to determine if we go ahead with an indoor skating program this year, the type of cost structure that will be in place, how many days and hours will be available, and the starting date.

Four TISC members raced in the New York 100k & Marathon last weekend. The skaters took on Prospect Park’s 5km loop and enjoyed the challenge and the grind of an ultra-long distance racing in New York City!
Morgan Williams placed 2nd in his age class and 10th overall in the Pro/Elite 100k race. Williams was able to keep in touch with the competitive lead pack for about 45km’s until he lost pace.
Peter Doucet entered the race battling and flu and a virus. He fell during the warm-up. Despite these challenges, Doucet, a former 2nd place finisher in the 100k, managed to push through with a 7th place overall finish in the Pro/Elite 100k.
Candy Wong and Herb Gayle participated in the 42km Pro/Elite Marathon. Candy Wong finished 1st overall in her age-class and 3rd overall among women.

This is a reminder that tonight’s program at Christ the King 200m track won’t be happening. The school requires the track and the field for an event.
