Hotice Trip 2022 Back by popular demand


Dear WISC Members,


We are pleased to announce on Friday 19th August 2022, WISC will be organising a trip to go and see the famous HOT ICE show at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Back by popular demand this show has been a hit with our members since we started attending as a club back in 2015.


We are going to be meeting from 4pm outside Widnes Ice Rink where a coach will take us to Blackpool at 4.30pm. The show starts at 7pm prompt and we need to be seated at this time as the Ice Skaters use the stairs in the opening routine to the show. The show runs for a minimum of 2 hours with intermission. Part one usually runs for 55 minutes and part two runs for 45 minutes with a 20 minute resurface in between the two sections. We aim to leave Blackpool Pleasure Beach around 9.45pm and the coach will return to Widnes Ice Rink.

The ticket prices have increased since we ran the trip last year, combined with an increase in coach costings due to fuel, the club has had to change the price we charge accordingly. We have been in negotiations with the Hot ice box office and the coach company to try to keep the costs down which is why we are only now releasing our details.


The cost of a ticket is now £25 for members and £30 for non-members.

This is a fantastic deal as still have the coveted premium seats in the horse shoe, these tickets on their own cost £28 if booking through the Hot ice website. Our ticket price also includes a guaranteed seat on the WISC coach, taking us from Widnes to Blackpool, leaving all the stress of driving to Blackpool out of the equation. All members under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and supervised. (Please note, if the child is a member the ticket will be £25, but the parent will be classed as the non-member £30.)

The club has a maximum of 59 tickets and this will be on a first come first served basis. The club purchases these tickets upfront so we get a discounted rate on seats and a coach. We do need your help to make sure we get as many of you coming as we can so the club does not waste money providing fun events for its members. The show is one you will walk away from with a real buzz for what you have seen on the ice and it will give you a new sense of excitement around skating.


Most of our club member’s wear their ice skating jackets or any WISC tops so we all stand out as a group. It advertises / promotes the rink we come from. Please don’t panic if you do not own a club jacket or a top, we will not make you go and purchase one. We just think it would be a nice idea to promote the club and rink we come from.


Please do fill in the information on the booking form online clearly and do not miss any important information out. Information such as phone numbers and full names will help us ensure we can keep in contact with you if you become separated from the group at any point. PLEASE NOTE the coach will not wait!!! You must be punctual or advise the organiser on the night of any issues.

We hope this will be an enjoyable event for all and we look forward to seeing you on the trip.


Regards

Si Wareing

W.I.S.C Chairman.
