FRIENDS & FAMILY PHOTOS
BY KENDRA KNOKE
В Thank you to everyone that turned in their forms to Kendra on Sunday. If you would like to place an ad, but haven't let
Kendra know yet, please send her an email with your child(ren)s name and the size of the ad you want. This way your
child(ren) will be added to the list for the photographers.
Kim Zaruba and Craig Shearman will be photographing at this Sunday's on-ice, so have your child dressed and ready
for the photo. Again, show costumes are not necessary for the photos.
Kim and Craig will need a lot of help this Sunday. Typically we have two people helping each photographer and a
runner or two to track down the children on the ice. If you would like to help out, please let Kendra know by emailing her
at [email protected] Just remember to dress warm because you are either on or next to the ice

BY MIA CHOI
We had a fantastic first rehearsal! Hats off to all the skaters who worked so hard and put their best “skate” forward
to make that happen! We spent most of the time getting the skaters "placed" and starting choreography. They
heard their music and got acquainted with each other and their choreography. Throw in the Halloween costumes
and it was quite a day. We will try to get the Sunday practice schedule out as early as possible each week and limit
changes as best we can. Thank you for your support as each week you watch things come together, and they will
come together we promise!
We will have a check-in desk at off-ice practice and on ice, so please remember to have your skater check-in as
soon as he/she arrives.
Excused absence must be submitted in writing to show directors prior to practice. Please remember that only 2
absences (including sickness) are allowed for show rehearsals. Repeated tardiness or arriving late to practice may
result in your skater being removed or rearranged inВ the choreography. KUDOS to our SNOWFLAKES,
FLOWERS and TEEN PARTY GUESTS as they were the only groups to have full attendance at off ice this week.
We will also have a volunteer signup sheet ready for you this Sunday, so you can pick up the form as your child
checks in. Please remember that volunteering is part of being a member of our club. If you have not volunteered
already in other committees, show volunteering is a great way to do your part and have fun at the same time! пЃЉ
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes during off-ice. NO JEANS, and sneakers or ballet shoes are
recommended.
Any questions regarding practice/show can be sent to Mia or Donna. You can contact them at:
Mia: 410-409-3815; [email protected] or Donna: 443-745-4412; [email protected]

NUTCRACKER COSTUMES
BY KATINA FINKS
Hopefully everyone got some type of information last Sunday about your costume. If you have questions please contact
your coordinator and get the information. Some groups had fabric and rhinestones handed out and some groups will be
taken care of this Sunday. Please make sure, if you haven't done so already, to pay for your fabric and pick it up. I have
been informed that some of the patterns I have listed are no longer available to purchase. If you are in need of one of those
patterns no longer available, you may trace the pattern from someone else. Many of the coordinators have the patterns
available.
We are in need of party dresses and mouse costumes! If you have a party dress that you are no longer in need of please
bring it in and give it to the party teen coordinator Tara Clairmont and Heather Offenburg. The mouse costumes go to Kim
Scherock the mouse coordinator. The mouse costumes need to be delivered to her sometime this week or by 1:30 to off-ice
practice.
OFF-ICE PRACTICE
Mice- after your group practices all mice that need a costume should meet with Katina and Kim so we can try already made
costumes on the girls to see who they fit. The costumes will be sold to those who fit in them best. Those who still need a
costume will need to have theirs made.
SOLOISTS
Sketches and colors are due by the end of off-ice practice this Sunday!
A FEW COSTUME SEWING TIPS:
****When sewing with lycra always make sure the shiny side is inside
****When sewing with velvet always remember to cut against the nap
**** Never use hot glue for rhinestones. It does not do well on costumes in temperature changes from warming room to the
ice, plus it has a tendency to melt the fabric
If you need information on seamstresses within the club please feel free to email me at [email protected] or ask your
coordinator. Please save all Joann fabrics and Michael's coupons that you will not use and give them to your coordinator!

at the rink. There will be an additional service fee for tickets
purchased online. We have also attached the flyer for you to post on
Facebook, email to families, print and hang at your favorite place.
GLIDE WITH PRIDE
BY SUSAN BLOOMFIELD
This week we will again hold Glide with Pride classes, and we will do
our best to work around the Nutcracker rehearsal schedule. Of
course, Nutcracker rehearsal takes precedence over the Glide with
Pride classes. Please listen carefully for when your color is called!
This program is run by volunteers - and hopefully the joy of skating
and enthusiasm for the sport is shared between the participants.
Please help your skater notice when their color is being called - and
encourage them to participate. All classes are held at the clock end
of the rink.
В Pre-injury Baseline
Concussion Test
By Mia Choi
Columbia Figure Skating Club and
the Children's National Medical
Center have been working hard to
try and reschedule our concussion
testing. The new date for the Preinjury Baseline Test has been
scheduled for Saturday,
November 5th, 10:15am and
11:15am at the Columbia rink.
Questions should be directed to our board directors coordinating the
program: Wende Jones and Susan Bloomfield. This informal
instruction time by volunteer junior instructors and assistants is
intended to supplement, not replace, more formal instruction through
group and/or private lessons.
THE NEXT ICE AGE
BY LYNN HAMPTON
Please join us on November 5th from 6 to 8 pm at The Gardens Ice
House in Laurel, MD for an open rehearsal of The Next Ice Age
Student Company. The Next Ice Age is a dance company on ice
featuring 13 Columbia Figure Skating Club members and
choreography by Nathan Birch, the company's co-founder and artistic
director. The company will be performing a work in progress to
Debussy's Nocturnes. The evening begins with a reception, and the
skating begins at 6:45 pm in the Logsdon rink. This will be followed
by another gathering with the skaters. Please come for what surely
will be a memorable night of skating!
