Ice show set for Satur­day

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

The Con­cep­tion Bay North Fig­ure Skat­ing Club will host its an­nual ice show at the S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Arena in Har­bour Grace on Sun­day, April 10. The show starts at 3 p.m.

The re­gional club op­er­ates from are­nas in Bay Roberts and Har­bour Grace.

Skaters of var­i­ous ages and abil­i­ties will be per­form­ing, and prepa­ra­tions have been on­go­ing for many weeks.

Among the many high­lights will be a per­for­mance by the pairs team of Robyn-Lynn McGrath and Matthew Power, which placed fourth at the Canada Win­ter Games in Hal­i­fax this past win­ter.

McGrath, age 14, is from Con­cep­tion Bay South, while 16-year-old Power is from Marystown. They com­pete in the pre-novice pairs divi­sion. Both also com­pete in sin­gles, where they have had suc­cess at the na­tional level.

They were matched as pairs skaters in July 2010, and just five months later earned a sixth-place fin­ish at the East­ern/West­ern Chal­lenge in Mis­sis­sauga, Ont. There were 15 teams from across the coun­try en­tered in the event.
