The FSCM purchases ice time for the re-purchase by its members. It is the challenging job of the Ice Management Committee and the Board of Directors to manage the needs of our skaters with the fiscal responsibility of the club. The purpose of purchasing club ice is to protect an adequate amount of ice time dedicated to figure skating. Without the purchase of club ice, the availability of freestyle ice time is uncertain.
The primary skating facilities of the FSCM are the Madison and Hartmeyer Ice Arenas. Ice is purchased at other area rinks by recommendation of the Ice Management Committee and approval of the FSCM Board of Directors.
Ice shall NEVER be purchased by an individual or members of the club representing the FSCM without authorization of the FSCM Board of Directors. Only authorized members of the Board of Directors or its designates may purchase ice for the FSCM.
If a member is interested in ice at another arena, a request should be made in writing with the appropriate information to the President. The request will be placed on the agenda of the next available board meeting. The Board of Directors will consider the request and vote accordingly.
Professionals and individual members may supplement FSCM ice as long as they do not solicit other members for use of non-FSCM ice offerings. Skaters and professionals may participate in other skating programs at other rinks but are encouraged to inform the Ice Management Committee as soon as possible so that scheduling arrangements or cancellations can be made, if necessary.
If a group of skaters choose to buy a significant quantity of ice outside of the FSCM, when they are able to procure an adequate amount from the FSCM, it could result in a financial loss, affect our ability to buy ice in the future and be detrimental to the solvency of the club. Any member conduct is subject to the by-laws of the FSCM and if their action is detrimental to the Club's well-being, the Board may act as it deems appropriate, including suspension of membership.
