Sunday 11th The club session Sunday 11th February  - Very restrictive parking due to the Scotland v France rugby game kick off 3.00pm

All access to the rink will be over the original Riversdale Bridge with stewarding in place to direct traffic.
Parking is very limited and the only area available to the west of the rink (behind the curling rink) where the waste recycling bins are located.
To avoid the risk of cars being towed there is NO parking in front of the ice rink. Any vehicle there after 10.30am will be removed by the SRU.

Stewards will be in place throughout to control traffic flow and be issuing PARKING PASSES for the VERY limited number of spaces that are available and once they are used up there are no more. Please accept that the stewards will have a difficult job and be courteous to them. Passes should be hand back to bridge stewards on exiting in order that they may be re-used for ice rink customers.

Some parking may be available in the surrounding streets and those who are able to walk would be encouraged to do so.
Any club members who do manage to park round the west are asked to vacate the area as soon as possible after the club session to free up the area for the few others who will arrive after the club.
Access/egress will become more difficult as the day progresses and pedestrian rugby traffic builds up. Please be patient and follow the stewards directions.

CLUB TROPHIES
Any one who won a Murrayfield open competition trophy from 2015 event should make arrangements to return this to the Club or Murrayfield Ice Rink by 27th March 2016. This is so that we can confirm that they are at the rink prior to the event this May, check them for damage and arrange for repairs as appropriate. It is the winners responsibility to ensure trophies are returned safely.

The Club are still missing a number of our Club and Open competition Trophies from earlier years. These are very expensive to replace.
Can any one who has a Murrayfield Ice Skating Club trophy that was not won in 2015 please return it to the Club/Ice Rink.
