Members of the Comox Valley Skating Club (CVSC) competed in the Vancouver Island Region Championships this past weekend, with the majority achieving personal bests and some coming home with medals, including two gold, two silver and one bronze.

The next event for CVSC skaters is the STARSkate Super Series Provincial Final to be held in Kelowna March 8-10. The Super Series is a grand prix format where the champions are determined by points collected in a series of events over the course of the season.

Last year CVSC was represented by one skater; this year five will compete, with two of those presently in the top five in their respective categories.  Peyton Meiers is sitting in second place in Jr. Silver while Jade Paganelli is fourth in Juvenile Women U11.

Check the skatinginbc.com website for live streaming schedules from Kelowna.

The skating club runs classes for Beginner to Advanced, Pre-school to Adult.  For information on how you can participate, go to comoxvalleyskatingclub.ca.
