CBNSC revives ice show
After a year absence, the Conception Bay North Skating Club’s ice show came back with a vengeance. The show served to highlight the accomplishments and the skills of the CBNSC skaters. It was very much a showcase as young skaters donned Superman costumes, dressed up as the Muppets and even Smurfette prior to performing their numbers.There were even minor hockey players from neighbouring asso- ciations performing a take on the popular CBC reality show Battle of the Blades. Donned in various National Hockey League team jerseys, male skaters skated with their female counterparts. Also highlighted were individual performances by Katie Dawson and Ethan Par- sons, along with dance pairs Parsons and Julia Keefe, as well as Andrew Littlejohn and Brianna Russell. There were a number of awards given out during the evening, including program assistant of the year Chloe Harris. Here are some shots from the event.
