Success at the Prescott Invitational this past weekend!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kim Durant Squires and Sandy Graham-Kirkby working alongside with Nicole and Joan Hubbard for all their time, hard work and sleepless nights over the past two months organizing a successful competition this past week-end. Along with Kim and Sandy I would also like to thank the other volunteers that spent every waking hour this past weekend at the rink playing music, announcing, and ensuring skaters were where they were supposed to be. Thank-you to all our club volunteers who were able to give any time they could to help out at the rink and/or providing donations of prizes and food. Special thanks to the community volunteers who helped out of the goodness of their heart. We truly appreciate everyone!
Thank-you to the technical officials, judges and the almost 400 skaters who came from all over to compete.
Thanks to the many local businesses that donated prizes through Carrie Dennis, who spent many hours at this task. A HUGE thank-you to Chris at O’Reilly’s Independent, Shawn at Tim Horton’s and Scott at The Red George Pub. The Prescott Figure Skating Club is forever grateful for everything you contributed. You are all great supporters of Prescott.

Good Luck Matthew!!

After placing 5th at the Skate Canada Eastern Ontario Sectionals held in Napanee earlier this November, Matthew Markell was listed as an alternate for the next round in case of injury/illness to a skater. Unfortunately for a fellow competitor and friend of Matthew’s, an injury has occurred and Matthew got the call earlier today that he is headed on to Skate Canada Challenge (which is Nationals for his level) held in Pierrefonds, Quebec this coming week (Dec 3-7/14). Matthew is ready to compete and is hoping that his fellow competitor and friend will have a speedy recovery. Congratulations and good luck Matthew, we are all cheering for you!!

Congratulations Alaine

Congratulations to Alaine Chartrand on her Bronze medal at the Rostelecom Cup in Moscow, Russia. Alaine won the short program and finished 3rd in the long to earn the Bronze medal overall with a new personal best score of 172 points. She achieved her goal for this event which was to improve on her score and standing from Skate Canada Int’l , just two weeks earlier in Kelowna BC, where she was 7th with 165 points. To earn a medal in her first season on the Grand Prix circuit is a huge accomplishment and a big breakthrough in her skating career. No Canadian woman has reached the podium at Cup of Russia since Joannie Rochette won bronze in 2007.

Join us this Wednesday November 19th at 6pm at the Leo Boivin Community Centre to congratulate Alaine!!
