Good Luck, Ryan!

Best of luck to Ryan Dunk this week at the U.S. Championships in Las Vegas! Ryan will compete in Senior Men on Saturday, Jan. 16, and on Sunday, Jan. 17. The short program will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday and the long program will begin at 3 p.m. on Sunday.

NBC's streaming platform, Peacock Premium, will broadcast both events live in their entirety and NBC TV's live broadcast will start at 4 p.m. on Saturday and at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. Peacock Premium is available for free to Comcast/Xfinity customers (accessed on the Peacock website via computer/mobile app or on your TV by using the Xfinity button on your remote to select the Apps menu) and available to others via a monthly subscription, following a 7-day free trial.

The U.S. Championships, featuring singles, pairs and dance events at the Senior and Junior levels, begins Thursday. Peacock Premium will broadcast all events live and the NBC TV schedule, along with the event schedule, can be found here:

While we were unable to have our usual sendoff this year, we were able to present Ryan with his BFSC Nationals Stipend, to help defray travel, hotel and coaching expenses, at club ice on Dec. 29. We are looking forward to a return to our usual celebrations in 2021.

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 Monday, February 15, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Ice World. Applications are available at

Elections Coming Soon: Seeking BFSC Board Members
The BFSC Board of Directors is a dedicated group of volunteers working together to support our members in their skating goals. Each spring, the club elects board members for two-year terms. Do you have the time and interest to serve on the board and help make BFSC the best club it can be? Contact

Thank You for Your Support!
Thanks to all who contributed to BFSC during our end-of-year campaign. We raised $1,115, which will enable us to offer ice time, test sessions and (hopefully!) club events in 2021. We continue to welcome donations through Venmo or check. For more information, contact

Congratulations to our members who passed tests recently!
