Great Job, Ryan!

Congratulations to Ryan Dunk on his great skates at the U.S. Championships! Ryan placed 14th in a deep, competitive Senior Men's field, landing a triple axel in both the short and long programs. With the pandemic lockdown, rink closures, ice time restrictions and limited competitive opportunities this season, preparing for the national championships was much more challenging than usual. We are so proud of you, Ryan!

Thank you to all the BFSC'ers who logged into U.S. Figure Skating's Zoom links to cheer on Ryan from the fan wall.

Spring Club Ice
Winter club ice season ends Sunday, February 28. Spring club ice will begin Monday, March 1 and continue through Thursday, April 29 (rink closed Easter Sunday, April 4). We will offer the same sessions as we did during the winter season. Please contact to reserve your times. Payment may be made via Venmo or Zelle.

Club Ice Reminders
Our sessions are limited to 12 skaters and 6 coaches, and rink management will only allow those who are signed up for a session in advance to enter the rink. Skaters and coaches MUST notify us at least 24 hours in advance if you will not be skating on a session for which you are scheduled.

All skaters and coaches should be wearing a mask and social distancing at least 6 feet while waiting to enter the rink, in the rink lobby and while waiting to get on the ice. Skaters only may remove their mask while skating but should put it back on once they step off the ice. The rink has requested that skaters and coaches wear masks and social distance outside when on the grounds of Ice World, including the parking lot.
Test Session
Our next test session will be in April, date and time TBA, at Ice World. We will provide more details as soon as they are known. Applications are available at

Congratulations to our skaters on a successful February test session!
