March 2014 Any one who has a Murrayfield open competition trophy from 2013 (or before) should make arrangements to return this to the Club or Murrayfield Ice Rink as soon as possible so that we can confirm that they are at the rink prior to the event this May  
A number of skaters were disappointed at the presentations in May 2014 because previous winners has not returned the trophy in time for the presentations and we had to use substitute trophies.
We would like to avoid this situation in the future.
