March 10th and 11th, 2007 the Cortland Figure Skating Club will present Magical Moments on Ice. Olympic Skater and 2006 US National Bronze Medalist Matt Savoie will be appearing.
The event will take place at SUNY Cortland's Alumni Arena starting at 7:00pm on Saturday, March 10th and 1:00pm on Sunday, March 11th.
Cortland's own figure skating club will be performing along with club's junior precision skating team, the Crown City Jewels.
"Having an Olympic competitor appear at the event should be a draw for many skating fans," said Machell Phelps, Executive Director of the Cortland Regional Sports Council. "We are expecting visitors from across Central New York to attend the performance. Having the chance to experience this level of skating in our community is a unique opportunity."
Members of Cortland's own figure skating club will be performing along with the club's two synchronized skating teams, the Crown City Jewels and the Crown City Gems. "Our Learn to Skate program, which is intended to introduce kids to figure skating skills for recreation, will also be featured. It includes about 80 children, some of whom are as young as three," explains Mary McGory, Show Chair. "For many of our skaters, the show is an event they look forward to all year. Magical Moments on Ice is entertainment for the entire family, and an opportunity to see local figure skating talent at its best for an affordable price."
