April News 2014

                Spring News from the VI Region


Another winter season has come to a close and many clubs have wound up their programs with test days, special ice shows, skater presentations and fun club events.

Congratulations to the VI Region Starskate Team who recently placed second in the province at the Starskate Final. Well done team:

Gurshan Riarh Kennedy Kittleson Mackenzie Poland

Emerson Van der Linden Jessica Timmins Shannon White

Jane Schaffhausen Marielle Timmins Lydia Robertson

Congratulations to the Racquet Club for once again putting on a fabulous ice show, "Aladdin on Ice".
The three sell out shows verified the hard work of all those involved. The costuming, lights, special effects and particularly the skaters were just fantastic.
Best wishes to the Comox Valley Skating Club who are putting on a show 'Under the Big Top' on April 5th. A great article about club coaches Dawn and Greg Ladret appeared in the island's In Focus magazine. See it at:

The Region's Annual meeting takes place next weekend, Sunday, April 6th, in Parksville. Please do your best to have a club representative attend. There will be executive elections, season end discussions and dialogue for the next skating season.

VISI is just around the corner and is once again being hosted in Parksville. Thank you to everyone for your contributions, either in the form of physical help or with your donations. All those involved will be busy hosting many  skaters from all over the province, who are vying for valuable points in this SUPER SERIES event.
