- Carnival Pictures (ALL Skaters) February 4, 2018 8::30-3:00 @ Ponoka Secondary High School. Times still to come.
- Dress Rehearsal / Solo Showcase March 9
- Carnival March 10
Carnival positions are posted on our bulletin board in the arena lobby. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. A position that is often intimidating is Carnival Set-Up. This takes many hands as it is a LOT of work. There are always other parents/families that guide everyone through set up so don't be nervous!
Are you interested in joining the board? We are currently looking for someone to shadow our Test Chair and to take over the Star 1-5 Assessments.
Do you have costumes laying around that you don't know what to do with? Skate Ponoka would love to add them to our costume room for upcoming carnivals!
IS THERE STILL SKATING IF OUR SCHOOL IS CLOSED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER?
Yes, our coaches come to the rink despite school closures, however, they do not expect skaters to attend when road conditions or temperatures are hazardous
