News & Notes

Meet Flip!

Hi, ISI skaters! I’m ISI’s new mascot, and you’ll be seeing much more of me in the future. I thought you might like to know a bit about me.

I was born in Antarctica, and my birthday is coming soon: Aug. 16! I love birthdays, even though I don’t know how old I am. But when it comes to my favorite activity — ice skating — age doesn’t matter anyway, right? That’s one of my favorite things about ISI: anyone of any age or skill level can have fun on the ice, learn new moves, stay fit and even compete!

I started skating after seeing an ice show where some of my friends were performing. They looked awesome out there, and I could tell they were having the time of their lives. I wanted to join them! Since then, I have made many more friends through my ISI weSKATE class, the fun public sessions at my rink and the events we all participate in together.

My favorite skating move is a spiral; it looks so graceful, even for a penguin! My least favorite move is Shoot the Duck, for reasons you can probably understand. I’m also struggling to master the Flying Camel, probably because, as everyone knows, penguins can’t fly (these are flippers, not wings).

I have never been to an ISI Worlds competition, so I’m very excited about going this year! Have you seen the cutout of me on the back of this magazine? Please cut it out, glue it to a handle of your choice and take me with you to Worlds. ISI wants to see LOTS of “Flat Flips” at Worlds! Have your photo taken holding me, then send it to editor@skateisi.org so we can be in the next magazine together! How about having a photo taken of your entire team holding Flat Flips? Oh, and by the way, Flat Flip photos are NOT just for kids. Remember that “all ages” thing? It applies to this, too!

If you will not be at Worlds, you can still get your photo in the magazine holding Flat Flip. Just take me with you wherever you go this summer, have someone snap a shot of us, then email it to editor@skateisi.org and tell us where the photo was taken. I love to go on vacations with my friends, so I can hardly wait to see where you take me!

Please note that photos need to be taken and emailed on high resolution in order to work for the magazine.

In addition to carrying me with you wherever you go this summer, you can also order a “Flip for ISI!” T-shirt! They are available through the ad on page 10 of this magazine, and they’ll also be available at Worlds.

Thank you to Charlotte Elkins, Traci Wagoner and Vicki Busch for helping to name me — I like my name almost as much as I love to skate!
