Uttoxeter Christmas Gala
« on: December 10, 2013, 08:17:54 AM »
Well, there are now some videos appearing of "Jingles all the Way" and I did promise I'd post some, so here you go :)


The Adult Dance

The Finale

I am so proud to be able to say I was a part of this - considering some of our skaters have only been on the ice a year, sometimes less, it's amazing what we've achieved. It took a lot of hard work, practice and patience, but we did it. We've had some lovely comments from friends and family - some saying it was better than shows they'd seen at bigger, more established rinks.


Roll on the next one!

That's really great to see so many taking part - and a great tribute to your coaches :)

A great skating community.


Well done O0

VIOI, those clips are great!!  I love to see other skater's shows and progress.  But which one are you?  I've seen your other videos, but I couldn't recognize you in the group!

Hehe, I'm the one in the purple dress (it looks blue on the video though) in the dance number - it's kind of a 50's/60's style dress :)


A lot of my friends didn't recognise me in pictures because I've lost some weight :)

Hmmm....I see two possibilities....one is a sleeveless dress, the other has a white sweater and cap.  I'm thinking you're the sleeveless one, but I'm not sure!  ??

They are indeed very cute, and I'm sure the world and his wife and next door neighbours would agree as they view this open forum ......


Sorry, just my  thought  :)
