SCSF is holding a critique of programs for SCSF Home club adults attending the adult sectionals in Burbank (March 10-12, 2017) and/or adult nationals in Wake Forest, North Carolina (April 18-22) at YBISC during Club ice on February 18. The performance portion of this event will be held from 7:15 to 7:45 AM, and this session is free for SCSF Home club adults.
