The Skater’s Edge

Scuba gear, flippers, bathing suits and skates, all the things needed to make a great October at the Morrisburg and District Skating Club (MDSC).  

Now, I bet everybody knows to bring skates to the rink, but this month we are  going  under the sea!! All through October the arena will be an underwater fish adventure for the Canskaters. 

Since we want as many people as possible to enjoy our underwater adventure October 3rd and 8th are bring  a friend nights!! The Canskaters can register their friend when they arrive, and both the Canskater and friend have a chance to win a Webkinz donated by Gilmer Pharmacy. 

There’s nothing better than skating with a friend and possibly winning a Webkinz.  And for those who have fun skating with their MDSC buddy they can consider signing up for skating to enjoy the fun all season long!

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and enjoys lots of turkey. Moms and dads are reminded that there is still skating Thanksgiving Monday so have your dinner early!

The Starskaters arena are busy brushing up on their skills and dances. They are also busy selecting new music and working on their new solos for the competition season this winter. Ali VanHoof, a competitive skater who has been practicing hard and competing all summer, is now getting ready for Sectionals in November. Good Luck Ali!

Finally, an event a lot of us are looking forward to…dressing up and getting candy…Halloween! Probably the best holiday of the year, if you’re a kid. The rink is also getting into the spooky spirit and on Saturday, October 29th is our Halloween party!! All canskaters (Saturday and Monday) skaters are welcome to dress up, come out to skate and have a blast! If you want to get a preview of the little ghosts and goblins drop by the arena Saturday morning.

Canskate is cancelled Monday, October 31st so everyone can go and show off their costumes door-to-door, and get more treats. Maybe some will dress as their favourite skater.

That pretty much sums up what’s happening in October for our club. More details can be found on our website.  

Remember, skate great and have fun!
