The Ohio Cup Invitational

April 20 &21, 2013

Dear Skaters, Coaches, and Parents,

            It is our pleasure to invite you to the second Ohio Cup Invitational at the Roll Arena in Elyria, Ohio on April 20 & 21, 2013.  Our first year was successful in attracting top clubs throughout the Great Lakes Region as well as competitors from the Eastern, Southeast, and North Central Regions.  We are located five minutes off the Ohio Turnpike, about 20 minutes west of Cleveland Hopkins Airport.  Our floor is 80’ by 180’ rotunda hardwood maple.  Our officials include Debra and David Adamy, Tracy Black, Gary Callahan, Sue Ellis,  Cecelia Kelley, Billy Mastriano,  Jim Puracchio, and JohnRangel.  John Peck will be the Meet Director.

            Additionally, THERE WILL BE NO SPECTATOR CHARGE FOR FAMILIES OF PARTICIPANTS.  We will hold a controlled practice on Friday, April 19 from 1:00 PM until 7:30 PM.  The cost of the practice will be $5.00 and the practice schedule will be forwarded to participating clubs.    

            We hope you will join us as we try to develop an invitational meet that offers a high level of competition for our best skaters and an opportunity for our newer skaters to be exposed to the best our sport has to offer.  If we can be of help in any way, please contact us at 440-366-6649 or at rollarena@oh.rr.com.
