Other notes:

Nancy will be putting together a questionnaire which will be given to all registrants to fill in. Nancy will also plan to meet with each skater (if they choose) for 30-45 minutes each to discuss goals and anything else that skater would like to discuss or ask. At the start of the camp we will try to schedule people for specific time slots. Most of these meetings will take place during lunch times and after ice sessions, so everyone needs to be flexible and commit to times to meet with Nancy Sr.

The camp will cost $185 each.
We are also offering pay per day sessions for those who may not be able to participate in the entire camp. $55 Thursday, $55 Friday, $45 Saturday, $40 Sunday.

Ice fees will need to be paid directly to the rink each time there is a session. We are planning 6 sessions, minimum, at $11/session. OR you can buy a 10 pack for $95. (7 ice sessions if you count the Wednesday afternoon on your own session.)

Camp fees will be payable to Safe Pay events. This event will be sponsored by the Flushing Meadows Speed skating club. While this is not a USS sanctioned event, we do encourage (but no required) all participants to be members of USS or their respective country governing bodies.

Banquet costs will be $25/head. Please pay for the number of people in your party. A final head count is needed no later than Friday Sept 19th so that the proper amount of food may be pre-ordered.
