Thursday 5th Missing Website
For some members who are not Tiscali customers they may not have been unable  to access the website for a couple of days this week. The ISP which hosted the website is part of ISP '184K' and they have been in dispute with Tiscali over payment. This week this escalated with tiscali cutting off access codes to 184K but continuing to providing continuity of service in the form of temporary access to all users that on the Tiscali Network.
The Clubs website is now hosted on I12 and Tiscali so it should be available to all.  Apologies for any disruption.
Remember if you discover the website is not available for a period of time pleas send an e-mail to and we will check it out. the e-mail is hosted by the domain register and as it is separate from the website will still work.

Monday 23rd Congratulations to John & Sinead Kerr in acheiving a place  in this year’s ISU Junior Grand Prix final which is to be held in Tokyo from 3rd to 6th December 2009. Their  Bronze medal at the Trophee Eric Bompard in Paris and their  Silver medal at NHK, in Japan, went towards acheiving their place in the final. This is the first time since the start of of the ISU Senior Grand Prix series that British skaters have secured a place in the final.
We also wish John & Sinead the best of luck  this week at the British Championships in Sheffield,  where they are skating to retain their British Senior Ice Dance title.
Thursday 26th Winter Wonderland - Ice skating in Princes Street
There is no 'official' opening ceremony this year as this is taking place at the Christmas tree on the Mound, however some Murrayfield skaters are taking place at the Skating derby.  If members are interested in supporting their fellow club members and would like a mince pie (and mulled wine for the older members) they have been invited by the organisers to attend.  Members in Edinburgh should have already received a poster from the Gilded Balloon Productions which will allow them entry on Thursday. If you have not received one and would like to attend then e-mail us  and we will send you a copy.
