HEART OF MEMPHIS INVITATIONAL
EAST END SKATING CENTER (MEMPHIS) , Tennessee
Greetings from Memphis.
We are pleased to announce that the dates for the 2014 Hearts of Memphis Meet have been set for Saturday, February 1, 2014 and Sunday, February 2, 2014. This will be a two day meet instead of the three day meet we have held the past few years in response to requests from skaters and coaches. We are extending the hours on Saturday to make this work and hope that it enables everyone to participate in the entire meet while reducing the number of nights you will be away from home. We will still have the full slate of events.
Attached is the official entry form, lists of requirements for figures and dance and an information sheet for the event. The entry form is in Excel format and all documents have been attached in PDF format as well. Please note that there are some special introductory events for new skaters. These are marked with an asterisk (*) and are only $5. We plan to hold a controlled practice on Friday, January 31, 2014 in the evening. That practice is also only $5. The entry forms and payments are due by December 15, 2013. Once we have the entries, we will provide a preliminary schedule of events. Please note that we may convert some events to co-ed or run events concurrently depending upon the number of entries in those events.
We have again negotiated a discounted rate at the Extended Stay America at 6520 Mt. Moriah Rd, which is very close to the East End Skating Center at 5718 Mt. Moriah Rd. When you are making your reservations, please call the hotel direct at 901-362-0338 and mention the Hearts of Memphis meet so that you get the discounted rate and the meet gets credit for your stay. If you use some other reservation system, you may get charged a higher rate and your stay will not be counted.
We look forward to seeing established friends (we don’t want to call anyone an old friend) and making new friends at the meet this year.
