The City Saratoga of Saratoga Springs is presenting its Annual Halloween Skate on Sunday, October 30th from 2pm - 5pm.
Once again we are in seeking donations of bake goods (cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc) for sale. We will provide DIBS hours in exchange for your baking efforts! You do the baking and provide us with the value (cost of groceries, your time - last year folks were very reasonable) and we will credit your DIBS account. Please RSVP with what you will be bringing to Frank Ovitt at email@example.com. Drop off times will be Saturday from Noon - 5pm and Sunday after 10am.
Note - we are offering DOUBLE credit for each hour worked on 10/30 from 1pm to 5pm and have opened up 3 slots per hour during those hours!
Here are a couple of helpful documents to review and share with your player(s).
The first, provided by renown local skating expert Dave Randall, is a series of off ice exercises that can and should be done at home. This form also contains info on skate sharpening and what skates/blades he recommends.
The second document is provided by Tim Grande who is currently serving as assistant coach to our 16U Elite Wrap team. This document provides info on what to eat and drink after competition. This info is especially helpful for tournaments or days with multiple games.

Dear SYHI Family,
If I've learned anything since I started playing hockey twenty-something years ago, it's that the hockey community is one of the strongest, most awesome and close-knit groups there is. Thoughout the seasons, we build life-long friendships that turn into family. Cooler still is that our family isn't just within the walls of the Saratoga Blue Knights locker rooms. We all know that when we leave the area, stangers become immediate family too, the second we find out their love for our sport.
Today, I'm sending this note in hopes of convincing you to help one of our own. Last year, Collette Pincheon, whose kids Taylor, Jordan, Paige and Maddie have all been a part of the SYHI family, struggled through treatment for breast cancer. Last week, Collette was told that her cancer had spread to her brain. She will start radiation treatment at Albany Med, hopefully next week. In the meantime, she cannot work and has 4 very strong kids who need help.
A Go Fund Me page has been set up for Collette and her family to help with anything from gas to drive to her treatments and medicine to help with side-effects, to groceries and lost wages. The goal was set for $5000, but I think we can help to blow that out of the water. Please consider giving, even if it's only a few dollars. https://www.gofundme.com/2gbaj9wg
There is also a Meal Train sign up for families who would like to bring dinner. Click this link if you might be able to help with that. https://mealtrain.com/49ylo5 .
Thank you for anything you can give to Collette and her family and I know prayers are welcomed too.
