“If you were not there, you missed a wonderful show”, was a sentiment expressed by a patron two days after the Comox Valley Skating Club presentation of “Big Time Fun Under the Big Top,” a skating extravaganza.

Being the skating club’s first ice show in about seven years, it was a big new learning experience for many and relearning experience from some.

"Productions such as this cannot happen without the many hands of the membership, and the strong sponsorship support of local businesses," said CVSC coach Greg Ladret. "We would once again like to thank our wonderful guest skaters, Canadian Senior Men’s competitor Jairus Godfrey and German National silver medallist and World Team member Aaron Van Cleave, and every skater, parent, grandparent, sibling, family member and friend for their participation in the show," Ladret added.

"If you missed it, well, we didn’t want you to have to wait another seven years, so we are pleased to announce that our full production Christmas Ice Show will be presented Dec. 13. Put it on your calendar," Ladret said.
