Revelstoke figure skaters had a strong showing at the Okanagan Regional Championships held in West Kelowna from Feb. 15-17. Revelstoke senior skaters Jacqueline and Megan Cottingham brought home medals with Megan winning gold for her Interpretive program and bronze for her Elements program and Jacqueline winning bronze for her Interpretive program.

Revelstoke intermediate skaters Alexandra Robertson, Jaimie Reynolds, Alexis Larsen, Sophie Dorrius, Makenna Howe, and Cassidy Legebokow were also rewarded for solidly demonstrating their skating skills in both creative and elements categories. Of special note Cassidy was awarded gold for her Star 1 elements, Makenna received silver for her Star 2 elements, and Alexandra, Alexis and Sophie received bronze for their Star 2 elements.

But these and other figure skaters in the Revelstoke Figure Skating Club aren’t sitting back on their laurels. They are working hard with Head Coach Nina Greschner to showcase their talents to their own hometown at the Figure Skating Carnival on Thursday, Mar. 14, at the Revelstoke Forum. You don’t want to miss this Heroes versus Villains extravaganza that features guest Revelstoke skaters School District Superintendent Mike Hooker, Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club Coach Matt Smider, new Community Connections Executive Director Craig Brown, and new Revelstoke Secondary School principal Greg Kenyon.

Admission is by donation and the doors open at 6 p.m. Bring a twoonie to vote for the best guest skater and help their favourite charity.
