May 2010    
Saturday 15th Starting on Saturday 15th May over the summer months the Club has an extra session every Saturday night from 5.00pm-7.00pm.
The session is mainly to encourage synchro and group team practice with a view to developing a club Synchro, or dare I suggest it Synchro teams.  There will be coaching as part of the session from Robert Murphy included in the entry cost.  This is £7.00 per session reflecting the smaller numbers expected and a longer session than the existing club session.
It is also hoped this time will be an opportunity to groups of club members to practice group routines for next years show and perhaps get some assistance from a coach at the session

Additional Club Ice  5.00pm-7.00pm.

The additional club ice was arranged to encourage Synchro and you can see some of the group here..

They are all having a great time and are very enthusiastic.

Why not come along and give it a try. 
27-28th The Club had unexpected visitors to both the Club session and the competitions this weekend. The British Ice dance champions and our very own Club members John & Sinead Kerr.
The skaters at the club on Saturday night were given a sneak preview to some of the moves in their new program.
It was not all sit back and watch the team still had to do some practice. They were amazed how hard John and Sinead have to practice, even harder than Robert and Ruth make them work.   You can see some more of the pictures taken this weekend if you click on the picture and as they agreed to present the trophies at both the Club and Beginner UK Skate events there are more on the Competitions page.

Wednesday 7th Olympic medallists prominent in new BOA Athletes' Commission
  FOURTEEN current and former athletes have been elected to the British Olympic Association's Athletes' Commission - a key advisory panel in the build-up to London 2012.

Three-time Olympic medallist Katherine Grainger has been successful in her election to the BOA's Athletes' Commission
More than 30 had applied for the available positions, with three-time Olympian rower Sarah Winckless previously named as chair.
The members comprise a mix of ten summer and four winter Olympians, with 12 different Olympic sport disciplines represented.
Nine of the athletes are still active competitors aiming for London 2012 or Sochi 2014, while five have retired within the last two Olympiads.

The make-up of the commission collectively accounts for seven Team GB Olympic medals in four sports and includes sailing double gold medallist Sarah Webb, rowing triple silver medallist Katherine Grainger, diving silver medallist Leon Taylor and modern pentathlon bronze medallist Kate Allenby.
They will be joined by skeleton slider Adam Pengilly, elected to the International Olympic Committee during this year's Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Ben Hawes (hockey), Emily Freeman (athletics), Goldie Sayers (athletics), Henry Nwume (bobsleigh), Jackie Lockhart (curling), John Kerr (figure skating), Karen Pickering (swimming) and Sarah Symington (cycling).

"I am very pleased that the composition of the new BOA Athletes' Commission reflects such a great wealth and diversity of Olympic experience," said BOA chief executive Andy Hunt.
"The calibre of athletes who put themselves forward is a tribute to the determination of British athletes to support their fellow Team GB Olympians. "The BOA will benefit greatly from the insights and perspective delivered by the members of the Athletes' Commission."

  John & Sinead Kerr
MISC welcome the news that Sinead & John Kerr have decided to continue competing for the 2010/11 season and particularly look forward to their performances in the British, European and World Championships.
They travelled to Nagoya, Japan last week to perform in a show called ‘The Ice’ on the 24th and 25th of July. Cast members include Mao Asada,
Xue Zhen & Hongbo Zhao, Evgeny Plushenko and Joannie Rochette. This is the 3rd year in succession they have been invited to this show.

Then its back to North America to prepare for another show, ‘Shall we Dance’ in Hamilton, Ontario, on the 22nd of September, followed by an appearance in ‘Riverdance on Ice’ in Lowell, MA, on the 16th of October with the top US and Canadian dance couples.

Further congratulations are due to John on being appointed to the British Olympic Committee Athletes Commission (see below). John was one of 14 successful athletes selected from over 30 nominations put forward.
