First Competition!
« on: November 26, 2014, 08:42:46 PM »
I entered LAFSC's Winter Skills Competition that took place yesterday, 25th November. I skated in the beginners category, requiring forward crossovers, forward drag and two foot spin. (The ice was TERRIBLE).

You can see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNuPHqg3nbo&list=UUwTu5UtyEsV1tf2it3Ap89g

I cam first! :D

(Let's not talk about how it looks like you could comfortably hang several coats off each hand....)

Thanks! I have done that 1,000,00 times better in practice, but I guess it could've gone worse.

Thank you! :) I got lots of compliments about my dress actually, everyone liked how it sparkled!

I would attach the pic my mum took of me and my trophy afterwards but it says the file is too large :/

Thank you :) I don't know which is more glittery: the dress or my bedroom carpet. ::)

Well done Mieke :-) I kind of want to have a go at the LAFSC competition next time but the thought also fills me with dread :-/

Thank you! Ah I entered on a whim, and got really scared about three weeks to go and didn't improve much from there on. The first one is the worst, I'm sure, but if you want to ease yourself into it we're a friendly bunch to start off with :)
