The 2013 U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championships are fast approaching and we still need volunteers! For your convenience, a volunteer sign-up binder has been placed at the Ice Den front desk. Each volunteer activity will have a sign-up sheet with requested dates and times of availability. You can also volunteer online by completing the Volunteer Form, located on the 2013 U.S. Adult Championships Volunteer Page or by contacting Kim Krause. Thank you to those CSCA members who have previously contacted the Local Organizing Committee to help out. We appreciate your support of our club and the adult skating community!

Dimitri Makansi
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of friend and fellow CSCA skater, Dimitri Makansi. Some of us grew up with Dimitri and some of us watched as he grew from an excited 6-year-old on his first pair of skates into an accomplished Senior skater. We will all miss Dimitri's sweet friendliness, playfulness and joy of skating. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Makansi family during this difficult time.
