BISC goes on-line

BISC's new website is up and running at

There's already lots of useful infor-mation on it including downloadable membership forms and club competition entry forms.

There is an electronic version of the newsletter and the club hopes to provide downloadable versions of club and all Open competition schedules.

Panto rehearsal dates are already available and we also hope to provide up to date information on any changes to club ice times.

Please let us know of anything you would like to see on the club website. There is a form on the site for this or you can tell any committee member.

Gala programmes

Gala programmes can be bought from the club table on Wednesdays or by asking a committee member.

200 Club

The winners of the September 200 Club draw were the Otto family (£38) and Mae McCole (£9). The tickets, as usual, were drawn by rink reception staff.

Have you paid?

With rehearsals for this year's ice show getting under way, all cast members are reminded that they must be paid-up club members if they wish to skate in the pantomime.

Don't forget that anyone who skates on club ice on Wednesdays must pay at reception for each part of the session they skate on-ie, 6.15-6.45pm, 6.45-7.30pm and 7.30-8pm.

Tickets must be handed to the duty committee member at the gate before going on the ice at the start of each session.

Copies of BISC News with colour photographs are now available, priced £1. Members can still get black and white copies free as part of their membership.
