If you're looking to see some impressive skating from some local kids, consider checking out the Albany Figure Skating Club's upcoming show on March 4. I've been to an FSC event before and have to say kids of all ages do a great job--and your attendance will help this worthy organization.
A press release follows:
The Albany Figure Skating Club will hold its 8th Annual Spring Ice Show at the Albany Academy Fieldhouse (117 Hackett Blvd., Albany) on Sunday, March 4, 2012 from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm. Nicol Lally, WTEN reporter and News10 weekend anchor, will be the guest MC for the show. This event will feature Club members from all over the Capital District performing individual programs, skaters from the Albany FSC Basic Skills program, and the Albany FSC’s Achilles Edge Beginner and Intermediate Synchronized Skating Teams. The Albany Figure Skating Club is thrilled to welcome Lally as the guest MC for this show. In addition to her reporting duties, Lally is also an accomplished figure skater who has competed on the regional, national, and collegiate levels. Admission to the show is $2 for Adults, $1 for students and seniors, and free for children under 5 years old. Refreshments will be offered for sale, and a 50/50 raffle will be held. All proceeds will help support the Albany Figure Skating Club’s activities and programs. Spectators are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to support the Greater Capital Region Food Pantry. For more information about the Spring Ice Show, please contact Mary Amodeo, show coordinator, at 439-8006 or firstname.lastname@example.org . The Albany Figure Skating Club, based in Delmar, NY, is a United States Figure Skating (USFS) club with over 80 members of all ages and all skating abilities. In addition to annual Winter and Spring ice shows, the Club also sponsors an annual USFS-sanctioned skating competition, USFS test sessions, a synchronized skating program, and a Learn To Skate program.
