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.

Se­nior skaters with the Con­cep­tion Bay North Skat­ing Club did their best to pay trib­ute to Lu­cille Ball and Desi Ar­naz with their “I Love Lucy” per­for­mance.
