Greetings Penguin Figure Skating Club Members!  We are excited to bring you the second edition of our club newsletter.

October was a busy month for our Penguin Figure Skating Club Members. Congratulations to all of our members who competed at 2016 South Atlantic Regionals!  Parents, coaches and club members are extremely proud of all the hard work and dedication you've shown. In addition to South Atlantics, our members had a unique opportunity to skate in Nancy Kerrigan's Halloween on Ice.  It was a huge success and a great opportunity for all of our participants.  Finally, we had a spooktacular costume event at the Steel Ice Center.  A big thank you to all of the parents who supplied goodies for our skaters. They had a blast!
