Morning hours you’ll have a chance to Walk with a group at 7a, or a different group at 8a, or take a ‘gentle’ yoga class instead out on the lawn at 8a. A little later in the a.m., we’ll have a stretch class, which will be followed by an easy, fun dance class, taught by our own Lori Johnson. Or perhaps consider hitting the golf course (list of interested parties are on FB, but we can send you info), or borrow a racket and enjoying the tennis courts (list of those interested are also on FB). Of course, there are also spa treatments to consider taking advantage of.
Wednesday afternoon, we’ll also be hosting a SHOW & TELL – MEMORABILIA EXCHANGE PARTY, so bring your travelable memorabilia items, jackets, photo albums, trinkets, programs – to trade, show, or sell, or giveaway. All $ Yours from any sales. You Are Responsible For Your Own Treasures. Sign up for table space, after checking-in to event at Registration Area. Hoping to see some fun items.
Thursday late morning we’ll be gathering for our Group Shot. Later, after the Group Shot, and your lunch, come join us near our Registration area – as we pay homage to the creators of the beautiful costumes that made the 60’s and other years shine. We’ll then present “THE FABULOUS ICE AGE“ right after the costume designers presentation. So please come inside, and stay cool and relax with us, and watch the movie, or simply continue to socialize in our general area.
REMEMBER: If you have at least 6 of your friends excited about coming – and you all want to sit together for dinner (up to 8 or 10) – let me know, by Sunday, May 22nd. We will hold a Table, but understand we will also allow for others to join your Table at the event, if not a full table of 10 people.
To Reserve the Table: Simply designate a Table Host, and that person should email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your list of the 6, 8 or 10 “paid/registered” attendees.
The Table Host will be the designated (only) person to change the names at the Table.
Hosts – please remember to check with each person to be sure they know they are sitting at your specific Table (to avoid being placed at two tables).
For those not participating in this promotion, there will be a “limited number” of Table Sign-ups available in the Registration Area at Check-In! There will also be plenty of Open Seating too.
This luxury resort is very spacious and airy, and our events are mostly outside. There are lots of large sun umbrellas, and shade provided everywhere. We have 4 Cabanas secured, as well as the pool has lots of chairs, and there’s even a Floating River! Please remember to bring sunscreen, and possibly a good hat!
REGARDING COVID: OMNI Resort COVID requests and guidelines, must be respected. Please bring quality face masks to wear, whether the resort requires it in public spaces or not, just in case. We will also provide masks at check in, if you need one. Hoping you will be vaccinated, and boosted. But know, we will not be checking for vaccine status.
Please respect that some of our registrants may not want to take off their masks, shake hands, maybe even hug. Please respect their wishes. And of course, please… if not feeling well, please do not come. To feel confident of your own health, we recommend you get a COVID test at home a few days before heading out.
The OMNI Resort and surrounding areas, are beautiful. If you have never been to Palm Springs, it’s very special… and Rancho Mirage is even prettier. You may want to consider coming in a day or two early, or even staying an extra day or two. It’s so relaxed there, with stunning, beautiful views, and of course wonderful shopping and sights to see… and yes, gambling nearby as well. This promises to be a fun get-away, from everyday life.

Ice Capades Reunion
MEMORABILIA TRADE, SELL and SHOW & TELL – HAPPY HOUR! (Wednesday afternoon)
Do you have some old special items or photos or sketches, you’d love to show/share with others? Or do you have old but in good condition Ice Capades clothing that you’d be willing to sell or give to a friend or fellow skater?
We’ll be celebrating early afternoon Wednesday, with a Memorabilia – Happy Hour (about 1 ½ hrs.).
1. Would love you to bring items you want to share, programs, photos, other souvenirs – that you may want to sell or trade as well. (2-3 people per table)
2. Photo albums, or other kinds of memory books/scrapbooks, would be fun to see too!
3. Feel free to place items not for sale in Ziplock bags, as not to get confused with what you might be willing to trade or sell.
4. All money’s earned are yours, should you decide to sell any of your treasures.
This should be a fun opportunity to see what people have saved over the years. Perhaps you have some things you would like to pass down to a younger generation? Personally, I was just gifted from a skater, some small very unique trinkets from 1948 and 1958. I was floored by the uniqueness of the pieces. Some amazing things out there.
Hoping a good handful will want to participate. You must reach-out to us and sign up in advance, so we know how many tables we will need. Deadline for this will be Wednesday, May 27, 2020. Additional spots may be available at event, but no guarantees of placement. Let’s make this a fun happy hour. Yes, we will have a cocktail bar.

‘Announcing – NEW DATES for the Ice Capades Reunion –

Now that it is unlikely California will be allowing large gatherings in Spring, and our Canadian friends are still being asked not to travel… it became evident we needed to push our event – to 2022. Doing this will hopefully allow for more attendees to be vaccinated. We want to be safe, and allow for as many skaters, and extended Capades family, to be able to attend as possible. Hope you’ll want to be there too!
Yes, if already registered, your event registration will be transferred to June 2022!

Please save any requests for cancellations, for extreme personal situations only. Much appreciated.

We are all getting older. (Still glamorous, but older). And after all this Covid-19 craziness it will be so good to see old friends again! So, please make a plan to come join us, and fully enjoy this special, unique reunion!
