GET YOUR skates on!

Friday evening skating sessions have recommenced in the Meander Valley Performing Arts Centre, just east of the bridge in Deloraine.

The recently formed Meander Valley Indoor Skaters Association has, in just 2 months, attracted over 70 members. Up to 50 skaters at a time take to the rink for the 6 to 7.30 pm skating sessions on Friday evenings.

The annual cost of joining the club is a very reasonable $10 per person. A skating session fee of $3 for juniors and $5 for adults over 18, makes a cost-effective recreational outing for young and old.

Non-members can register and access the sessions as ‘Come and try it’ participants for up to 3 times without having to join the club, but entrance fees for this are a little higher at $5 for juniors and $8 for adults.

Inline hockey practice will commence shortly for 6 year olds up to adults.

All fees include the use of inline skates. Protective padding and skating instruction is available for the asking.

To enquire about club activities, please contact the Club President, Peter Ashton on mobile: 0409 234 061.
