TAMPA BAY SKATING ACADEMY COUNTRYSIDE CLUB
JULY 23-28, 2018
NEW ENGLAND SPORTS CENTER
TEST AND ENTRY DEADLINE: MAY 1
I wanted to share some information about the ISI World competition this summer in Boston. First let me apologize for the late organization for this trip. I am trying my best to get all things rolling and put in stone for our kids so they can enjoy a competition and trip they will definitely remember for the rest of their lives. With deadlines coming up quickly, time is of the essence with your responses. In this email I will outline what I have lined up. There will be a following email that will include a contract, sign up sheet, and registration form for the competition itself.
We have secured a hotel 2 miles from the venue. We have 15 rooms blocked at the rate of $139 per night from July 22-29th which includes breakfast daily, If you agree to attend the competition you will have until June 1st to reserve your room at this rate with our group. The hotel is pet friendly in case you would like to bring your pet for a non refundable fee of $100. Wifi and parking are complimentary. There is shopping and restaurants as well as other activities for the kids near the hotel.
Registration for Worlds needs to be received by their committee no later than May 1, however I will need a commitment from families attending by April 26th so we can make sure we have enough time to work on teams for competition.
Once we get all the kids who are going to commit to going, we will start planning fundraising. Fundraising this year will raise funds to offset coaches fees. Your child must participate in at least 75% of the fundraising events to receive funds towards coaches fees (will be included in the contract following). TBSACC (our club) will collect all funds and prior to July 1st will pay the coach(es) the amount raised and then an email will go out with the new balance you will owe the coach(es).
The rink in Marlborough MA., is serviced by four airports. Logan (Boston), Manchester (NH), Worcester (MA), and TF Green (Warwick RI). I have started searching flights and to book now I have found prices starting at $299 round trip and up from there.
Once we have the kids committed to attending, you will have the option to purchase pins from the club to exchange at Worlds. Pin trading is a fun, exciting tradition at Worlds where the kids trade pins with kids from other rinks.
It basically boils down to the following dollar amounts:
Hotel: right about $1100 including taxes of 11.7% for the full week
Worlds: Based on amount of programs your child does. $85 first event, $30 each additional
Airfare: Based on airline/airport used and how far in advance you book.
*** Please email me, text me, call me, facebook me, prior to April 26th with your intentions whether or not you will or will not be attending. This is crucial to assuring your child is properly included in all the fun. Should you have any questions I have not addressed here please let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you all. This is going to be a great and fun trip!
