The Skater’s Edge

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls…come one, come all to the Morrisburg and District Figure Skating Club’s annual carnival night on March 31.   

Starting at 7 p.m. all skaters from canskate through starskate will express their love of skating through various programs, as this year’s theme is the Love of Skating.  We have all been working extremely hard this year, and would love to see the community come and watch what we have accomplished. All proceeds go to supporting our club. Remember to arrive early for good seats!

In order to prepare for this showcasing event, line practices started Monday, March 5th.  Skaters can check the website for the practice schedule.  

Canskaters may be working hard for carnival but are reminded not to forget their Year End Party March 24th at the McIntosh Inn from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the skate office. Skaters are now also marking, April 22nd on their calendars for the clubs annual year-end banquet, where skaters receive their awards for all the tests they completed throughout the year.

Our starskaters are still working hard for a test day on Friday, March 9th in Morrisburg, (high and low) and one on Saturday, March 24th in Cornwall (high only).  

There are two competitions left for the Starskaters, the High School competition in Smith Falls, March 27th and in Gloucester April 13-15th. Good luck to all that compete. 

We had two skaters competing in Winchester on March 10th. Congrats to Jessica Groves and Madisyn Hart. And congratulations to everyone who represented us at the Interclub competition, I hope some of you had a chance to go and see it. 

Skating has been cancelled Wednesday, March 14 and Saturday March 17 due to hockey tournaments.

See you all at Carnival!!

Remember Skate Great & Have Fun
