Swift Current's InnovationPlex was in for a flurry of excitment this past weekend as southwest skaters brought the 'Wizard of Oz' to life on ice.

The annual ice show, put on by the Swift Current Skating Club, amassed nearly 500 spectators and family members on Sunday afternoon. 

Dorothy Gillis, coach at the Swift Current Skating Club, is thrilled by yet another season of success, growth, and the chance for the kids to show off their skills.

"We had a great carnival," said Gillis. "The costumes and performances were all very done, the music was great, the kids looked like they had a great time, and as usual, it went on flawlessly."

The event also included a 50/50 raffle, concession, and appreciation gifts for the program assistants.

"A highlight for me was seeing the kids in their costumes," Gillis noted. "Just wrapping up the year in a positive way."

All skill levels of skaters, from Pre-CanSkate to the competitive level Stars to adult skaters, participated in the event from 2 - 4 p.m.

"We haven't always had an adult program," said Gillis. "This year we were fortunate to have about 10 different adults come out throughout the year and then six that wanted to perform today."

The Swift Current Skating Club are also saying goodbye to Summer St. Cyr, a long-time member who will be graduating this year.

"I want to thank the executive, the parents, the kids for all their hard work, and all my collegues; Shaila, Lenny, and Hailey," Gillis added.
