Happy New Year!

The Executive of the VI Region Board wish everyone a very Happy New Year 2014.

Already the 100th Anniversary Celebration of Figure Skating, held at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships, is history. The championships wrapped up on January 15th in Ottawa. The canal just happened to thaw during that week so the weather, needless to say, did cooperate. An outdoor arena at City Hall, along with traditional Beaver Tails and a Barbara Ann Scott display of memorabilia were an additional highlight to the week of skating. The Canadian Olympic team was named and everyone will be looking forward to Sochi in just a few weeks.

The VI Region held their tri-annual meeting January 19th in Parksville and most clubs were represented. B.C./YK Section hosts the Canadian Synchronized Skating Championships at the end of February, which is always an exciting event. It is being held at the Copeland Arena in Burnaby.
