The Golden Figure Skating Club is putting the final touches on their annual Winter Carnival.
Stars on Ice will be at the Golden and District Arena on Saturday Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. The season windup will feature the talents of the nearly 50 skaters that have been working hard all season with the club.
The show will be a bit scaled back this year, but you can expect to see the same great skating with some exciting costumes during the one-and-a-half hour performance.
Midway through the season the club went through a coaching change, and club president Chantalle Schacher said they were fortunate to have another one step in to fill the role quickly.
“Melissa Miller was able to fill that role, and she did a wonderful job of keeping us going for the rest of the season,” she said.
This performance will also be the last for two skaters who have been with the club for almost their entire lives. Katelyne Elliott and Amelia Birnie will be graduating this year.
“They’ve been a big part of the club, and have been junior coaches for the younger skaters as well,” said Schacher. “We’re really proud of them.”
The concession stand will be open for Stars on Ice, and there will be a raffle held for some baskets at the event.
The club will also be drawing the winner of their 50/50 raffle, which they’ve been selling prior to the event. Tickets for the 50/50, provided there are any left, will also be available until the draw.
“The ticket sales for that have been going really well, the draw will be for at least $2,500,” said Schacher.
Tickets for the show will be available for $5 at the door, and will be free for children 12 and under.
