Skaters earn medals at Vancouver Island Regional Championships

Comox Valley club now preparing for March production, featuring Elvis Stojko

Comox Valley Skating Club members posted impressive results on the weekend at the Vancouver Island Regional Championships.

Peyton Meiers took gold in her first go at the Gold Women’s level. Emma Cullen picked up silver in the Juvenile U14 women’s event, while Jane Schaffhauser collected two fourth place finishes in her first run at the Novice Women’s U17 level, setting a personal best in the Freeskate portion, and missing a medal by .09.

Skating in their respective age groups in the STAR events, Nicole Webster, Kiara Wells, STAR Three, and Cleo Dawson, STAR One, collected bronze. “This was Cleo’s first skating competition ever, and Nicole’s first time at the STAR Three level,” a CVSC spokesperson noted. “To finish off our weekend on a high note, Sydney Goudreault was awarded silver for her strong performance in STAR Two.”

These skaters along with other members of the CV Skating Club will now turn their attention to preparing for their performances in the March 19 Las Vegas-themed ice skating production with guest star Gladys Orozco and special guest star, world champion, and Olympic silver medallist Elvis Stojko.

Tickets are available at the office of Daryl Robbins Notary Public, Blue Heron Books, Gone Hollywood Video, Vancouver Island Visitor Centre, and by email at
