People you haven't seen in months come up and give you a hug, then you catch up.
|There was video too!|
|Awards are passed out.|
Even though I won't ice monitor or do announcing for tests, I'm still recognized for my support...
|I'm thanked for doing my bit for test sessions.|
(That was nice)
There's actually some club business--3 minutes tops!
|We vote on some financial thing.|
Our president announces she's going to become a judge. Some of the board members are going to finish their board service.
It's open season next year for the club leadership!
Just remember, I only do set up and clean up. No Responsibility! So I will just be showing up for the food!
And now let me say a few serious words about Joining The Club. Even if you don't test, if you want to show support for your rink, and make sure that Freestyle continues to be offered, I think it's important to join the local club. Oh, I've read horror stories about some clubs, I can't speak to those. I have a wonderful club, and being a member of the club really helps me stay in contact with the leadership. I think if I want to test in the future, establishing some street fred by supporting tests and comps really helps both the club and the rink (by showing a consistent membership) and opens up opportunities in the future.
