The 2012-2013 competitive figure skating season is well underway, with Canadian skaters winning their share of medals at Skate America, Skate Canada, and The Cup of Russia.
Closer to home, Comox Valley Skating Club skaters started their season competing at three events in the past month.
Meghan Taylor, Rachelle Beauchamp and Peyton Meiers headed to Kamloops for the Autumn Leaves Competition. Rachelle Beauchamp, Dustin Lucas, Hailey Dickson-Greaves and Jade Paganelli competed in the BC/YT Championships in Parksville, and this past weekend Jane Schaffahuser and Peyton Meiers competed in the newly created Vancouver Island Interclub Championships, where Meiers won the bronze medal to go with the bronze she picked up at the Kamloops competition last month.
The next competition for CVSC skaters will be the Vancouver Island Region Championships in Victoria in February 2013, where several of the above mentioned skaters will be joined by many of our younger skaters. Other exciting events ahead for Comox Valley Skating Club; first, participation in the Christmas Parade, then on Dec. 20 CVSC will host a Christmas Gala Performance and Fun Fair in Sports Centre #1.
