Elkford's skating club put on it's annual carnival

About 40 young skaters took part in Elkford’s Musical Legends on Ice skating carnival at the weekend.

All ages of skaters from three to 18 took part in the show, which featured music from Michael Jackson, Don Maclean, The Doors, Elvis Presley and many more stars. It was the 34th annual show held by Elkford Skating Club.

“The first half of the show featured legends passed and the second half of the show was legends living,” said parent volunteer Kristin Cronin-Barrow.

“There were two performances on Saturday – an afternoon show and an evening one. In the evening performance at the end of the show there was a surprise for the skaters as 12 of the parents and our coach did a little performance on the ice which was a big hit! Some of the dads dressed up as ladies, moms dressed up as men and we also had parents dress up as hockey players and ninjas.”

The show was also a good chance for parents to meet the Elkford Skating Club’s new coach, Lisa Skubovius.

“Lisa brings with her years of experience to our club,” said Kristin. “She moved to Elkford for our skating season from Morden, Manitoba. She has been a coach and a judge for 29 years, coaching all levels of skaters. She was a coordinator for the Vancouver 2010 Paralympic Games, a Director for Disney Live and Disney On Ice. We are delighted to have Lisa as part of our club and as an active member in our community. We hope she continues to remain with us for seasons to come.“
