Lace up your skates, don your bedazzled lycra and come take a spin at figure skating! Just look at the way the ice sparkles, the entire rink freshly gleaming from being swept clean by the Zamboni. Come on out and try your paw at individual, duo, or group skating – we will host ladies and mens singles, pair skating, and ice dancing competitions (who doesn’t like to ‘cha cha cha’ on the ice!?!). Show everyone what your stuff(ing) is made of by spinning until your dizzy, jumping like Super Man, and lifting your partner and twirling about. And for those anipals that are truly talented, come hit the ice with a partner, or a pair of partners, and showcase your death spiral skills (where one anipal is the pivot with one toe anchored in the ice, holding the paw of their partner, and both of you circle and circle and circle deep down almost parallel to the ice). Or perhaps hijinks is in your blood, and you just want to ‘borrow’the Zamboni and take it out for a spin! It’s all good anipals – just lace up your skates nice and snug, and SKATE!

NipClub is hosting the World Championship of Snowboarding during the January monthly pawty! Do you have to know how to snowboard to compete? Heck no, everyone is welcome! We’ll all be taking our turns, or buddying up, to attack the alpine hill, where snowboarders speed down the hill bobbing and weaving through gates – fastest time wins. There will also be the halfpipe competition, where snowboarders perform tricks and attempt to get the best height while redefining difficulty in twists and turns. And for those anipals that really dig feeling like their flying through the air, we’ll bring out the awesome ‘big-air’ competition – this is where you zooooooom down a hill, with a little bit of gravity you will then come up a little, yet steep, hill, and when you hit the top you push off with your legs and free fly off of a bit of a mountain side grabbing big-air to do as many tricks, flips, circles, and twirls, possible until you safely land on a fluffy, soft, blanket of snow!

Do you like going fast? Do you like getting squished in to a tight space with a bunch of other anipals….dressed in skintight lycra….and then going fast….down an icey hill? You do!?! Well then, this here event is right up your alley! Come on out and watch or participate in the Cats versus Dogs (or whatever, there will be stuffies, goldfish, bears, cats on dogs teams, dogs on cats teams) bobsled races. The team members will use their paws to ‘race, race, race’ to get all the speed they can muster, and then as fast as they can they will all jump in to the bobsled and steer it hither and yon, through the town’s racetrack, zooming up the steep inclines, careening down the hills, screaming and holding tight – and all the time, racing against each other in order to win the race! We expect the teams to get creative in order to win the race, you know like toss snowballs at each other, bump in to one another, so if you come on out to watch the race, make sure you watch where you stand, or you just may end up in the fray!

It has finally arrived! The most anticpated event of Nipclub Pawties is here! The Downhill Nipclub Slalom Skiing Championship do you have what it takes to make it to the end of the course, can you get through the gates without crashing into them? There is a twist to this race can you get through gates and collect the Nip hanging on them? Can you organise the Nipclub revellers to get down the course in one piece and not erm cheat be aware that anipals love to create drama so can you keep them skiing? What about the unique jumps throughout the course can the anipals get down there in one piece and how will the kitties cope being out in the wet snow see how many anipals you can get round this course! Interested then this is for you!

How much do you know about the Winter Olympics? Do you know your skies from your skates? Do you know what a halfpipe or a salkow is? Anipals love to answer questions so see if woo get them truly baffled with your questions and who will be the champ?
