Speedskating Discount Card

The U.S. Olympic Education Center wants to hear from businesses who want to support this year’s major speedskating events while promoting their business at the same time.

It’s through a new discount card.

Anyone buying tickets before August 1st to the U.S. Olympic trials and the ISU World Cup will get one.

The cards themselves haven’t been printed yet.

But USOEC head Jeff Kleinschmidt says they will be within the next couple of weeks.

The deadline to take part in the card idea is this coming Sunday.

Kleinschmidt says about 30 area businesses already are.

They cross a wide range of products and services, as well as locations.

To join up, there’s a form you need to fill out.

You can get one by calling the USOEC at 227-2888, or emailing Kleinschmidt at jkleinsc@nmu.edu .
