Nelson Skating Club hands out the hardware

The Nelson Skating Club recently held their 2014/15 year end banquet and awards ceremony at the Eagles Hall.

The Nelson Skating Club recently held their 2014/15 year end banquet and awards ceremony at the Eagles Hall. It was an entertaining event hosted by Lucas Myers who enlightened everyone with his humourous insightfulness of the skating world.

Highlighting the night was recognition of the gigantic milestones the club achieved this year: the jump harness installed in the Civic Arena, the new logo and new club jackets.

It was a celebratory night on several levels with Morgan Sabo receiving a 16th birthday sing-along and touching speeches to high school graduates Christina Champlin and Courtney Shrieves along with a slide presentation of their years in the club.

Program Assistant of the Year went to Shantalla Hill, the Dance Artistry trophy was awarded to Charly Defouw, Most Improved Skaters in their respected level went to Daria LeBleu, Brianne Morris, Courtney Shrieves, and Charly Defouw. Sportsmanship was awarded to Helena Keating and the Test Achievement Trophy to Charly Defouw. Christina Champlin was given her special Gold Interpretive Medal.

Coaches Sarah Gower and Yoshie Measures gave speeches and special awards recognizing each skater for their accomplishments this season.

Earlier, at the Broadway on Ice Show, awards were also given to the CanSkater of the Year: Ivan Hale, CanSkate champions Molly Anderson and Gabriel Makortoff, and the Coaches Cup Trophy to Brianna Tomlin.

After a short rest, the club is gearing up for summer school taking place over three weeks in August at the Nelson and District Community Complex.
