U.S. Figure Skating and The Skating Club of Boston hosted a SkateFest at the city’s famous Frog Pond on Feb. 15. More than 400 people turned out for the fun on


a Saturday morning. The Skating Club of Boston coaches were on hand to help skaters of all ages enjoy the day.


Boston University’s fi gure skating team enjoyed its “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party,” where it passed around a copy of the November 2013 issue of SKATING magazine that featured 2014 U.S. champion Gracie Gold on the cover. “We invited Gracie to the par- ty,” Alix Vargo, the club’s secretary and fi tness coordinator, said. “We’re hoping we’ll have her blessing this year at collegiate nationals (in Adrian, Mich., April, 11–13 ) and wish her the best in Sochi.”


Members of the Georgia Figure Skating Club show their spirit for the U.S. Olym- pic Team. They made posters, Olympic rings and had special clothing created for the occasion. The skaters are from Lawrenceville, Ga., and they train in Duluth, Ga. (l-r) Victoria Harris, Ava Wil- liams, Rhea Pandit, Meredith Scafi di, Sarah Brown

that was displayed at our home rink at the Genoveva Chavez Commu- nity Center,” club president Tammy Berendzen said. “Each skater who participated in the skate-a-thon had a skate placed on the tree. Those who made donations received one leaf on the tree for each $5 donat- ed.”


The donation also included a portion of the profi ts from the club’s


holiday show, titled “Destination Sochi: To Russia With Love,” which starred U.S. pairs pewter medalists Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim. Santa Fe skating families also made contributions.
