The Castlegar club’s Year-End “Skating Finale Mini-Show “is on Wed Feb 27, 2013 at the Castlegar Complex, and it is free admission.  It is a “Show & Shine” event during the last Canskate day of the season, starting at 4:30 – 6:30.  Canskaters will be showing off their routines first, followed by the club STARskater’s solos, duos and group numbers.  It will be a great opportunity for skaters to show all they have learned to friends and family!
