NATIONAL SHOWCASE 2014. SPOTLIGHT OPERATORS NEEDED!!! PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO HELP!

The following message is from Jan SooHoo:

Hello LAFSC members, parents, spouses, and siblings,

I need your help, and a lot of it. We must staff 4 spotlights continuously through four very long days of practice ice and competition. I am appealing to all of you who have been spotlight operators in the past, but especially those of you who have never tried it, to volunteer as many hours as you can. No experience is necessary. We will train you in 10 minutes.

What is it about Showcase that makes it special and different from any other competition in which skaters get to do artistic or showcase programs? The answer is, of course, SPOTLIGHTS!

As you know, our club is hosting National Showcase 2014 from August 7 – August 10, and over 400 skaters will participate in 697 starts. National Showcase has never been so large! If there is any club in the country that can handle a showcase competition of this size, it is The Los Angeles Figure Skating Club.

The shift schedule for spotlight operators is below. Please take a look at it, decide which shifts you can do, and then choose some more. Every shift must be filled. Operators need to be 14 years of age or older. Ask your friends from other rinks, your brothers and sisters, and parents if they will help our Club put on the best National Showcase ever. LAFSC skaters who have never done spotlights, this is your chance to “pay it forward” in return for all the man-hours that went into providing you with special LAFSC Showcase experiences as you were growing up.

Email Jan SooHoo at jan@soohoos.org, or call her at 818-952-4103 as soon as possible and please refer to specific shift numbers that you can fill. Thank you!
