It is that time of year when we start to talking more about the Annual Ice Show.  The Black River Falls Figure Skating Club celebrates it's 40th Anniversary!  The Annual Ice Show will be held March 22-24, 2024.  This year's theme is celebrating the past 40 years with a conglomeration of past ice shows.  While the ice show is a great way for your skater to be able to show their favorite people the hard work that they have accomplished this year with skating, it is also a committment by both parents and skaters.  THE ICE SHOW HANDBOOK IS AVAILABLE ON THE CLUB'S WEBSITE AT WWW.BRFFSC.COM. PLEASE REVIEW THE HANDBOOK AND WHAT IS REQUIRED OF BOTH SKATERS AND PARENTS.

A:  You can email the club at [email protected] or ask any of the BRFFSC board members that you see at the rink.
