The Strathmore Skating Club held their annual Fire on Ice figure skating gala March 17 at the Strathmore Family Centre.
Figure skaters aged between five and 22 got the chance to show off the programs and routines they have been working on all season to their families and friends.
It was the first gala event since their Christmas show.
Skaters went out for individual skates, pair skates and group skates, with no one performing more than twice.
The club welcomed guest skater Jane Gray to the ice. Gray was born in Calgary and raised in Canmore; she has been figure skating for more than 16 years. She is a four-time Alberta senior women’s champion and recently placed 14th during the senior Canadian Nationals in Ottawa.
During the Calgary Winter Invitational March 10-12, Club skater Tamzyn Musselman placed second in the U13 division at the STAR 4 level.
Rylee Wilson captured bronze for an interpretive skate during the North STARSkate Invitational in St. Albert March 3-5. This is her 13th year of skating and she competes at a STAR 9 level.
The club will be competing in the STARSkate Championships this weekend in Airdrie. The Chinook Open takes place the following weekend in Lethbridge.
