The 100 Mile House & District Figure Skating Club is in the midst of taking registrations until Aug. 16 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre arena from 1 to 4 p.m., with skating from 5:45 to 7:45 p.m.

Club president Nanci Lundquist notes if people are unable to come to the arena during those times, there will be brochures and registrations at the office door. She adds the club will also have a booth at the South Cariboo Community Fall Fair, Sept. 6-8.

This year, the 100 Mile House & District Figure Skating Club is offering three programs this year.

• CanSkate on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30-4:15 p.m., from Sept. 10/13 to March 6/14.

• Junior Academy on Mondays and Wednesdays, 3:30-4:30 p.m., from Sept. 9 to March 5/14.

• StarSkate on Mondays, 3:30-5:15 p.m., and Wednesdays and Fridays, 3:30-5:30 p.m., from Sept. 9/13 to March 7/14.

Skaters, as young as five years, or younger depending on their birth date, are welcome to register.

“My daughter has been involved with skating for the past five years,” says Lundquist. “I’ve been on the board for the last year.

“It would be great to have more parents volunteering; the more volunteers the better the club runs.”
