  1. Super disappointed that ISI is moving forward with a competition in a location that requires a vaccine passport in order to attend.

    • Hello Nancy, We are sorry you are disappointed. Our Winter Classic event was scheduled well before the facility was recently required to implement a vaccination policy. A lot of planning goes into these competitions. As you know, the situation is quite fluid across the country, and we are doing are absolute best to continue to offer skaters the opportunity to be back on the ice competing.
