PICTURES OF STARSKATERS WHO ARE COMPETING IN PROVINCIALS AND KEN CHETWYND WILL BE AT THE ARENA FOR I
posted Feb 24, 2016, 6:56 PM
We are going to take a group photo of the STARSkaters who are competing in Amherst at Provincials.We are going to take the group picture on Tuesday March 1st at 620pm. We are asking all skaters to wear their dresses and bring whatever ribbons and/or medals they receive from the weekend.
Also Ken Chetwynd is going to be at the rink that day at 630pm to take individual pictures. This is similar to last year in that there is a $20 sitting fee which needs to be payed to Ken or Rosie that night This is optional so do not feel that you need to have these done. Ken posts these pictures to his website http://kenslens.ca/figureskating where you will have the option of purchasing the digital copies of pictures you want and/or having Ken create a poster for you. They are $25 and again are optional and you do not need to purchase one.

For anyone who has friends and family that would love to watch their skaters compete in Amherst this weekend but are unable to make it there Bruce Dempsey is providing a LiveStream Video feed of the event for a small fee (I believe for $10 you can watch the whole day of competition)
Here is the link to his website where you can access the fed http://www.bigaro.ca/SkateCanada.html
The quality of the feed will depend on the WiFi in the arena (some are better than others).
