    All day
    Each year ESSA tries to support our fellow Alberta speed skating clubs by providing a team building bus trip for our members.
    This year’s proposed ESSA bus trip is to Fire on Ice in Lloydminster on December 7th.  
    This is a one day, all ages ability meet and a fantastic meet for both seasoned and new racers. 
    Many of our families love this meet.
    The bus will leave Edmonton on December 6th at approximately 3:00pm
    and return to Edmonton  late Saturday evening once the racing is completed.  
    The bus is a 56 passenger bus. 
    Seats will be $50 for the first seat and $25 for each subsequent seat.  
    We are currently trying to get a feel for the level of interest in this bus trip. 
    Please email Tammy Currie vicepresident@edmontonspeedskating.ca with the number of seats you would need.
    Please note that this is not a formal commitment with payment at this time. 
    If we have enough interest to go ahead with the bus trip I will send out another email with more information and a sign up sheet.
    Thank you,
    Tammy Currie​
