Iceland Competitive Edge skating club to celebrate 2020 National Skating Month

FLINT TWP. — Iceland Competitive Edge Figure Skating Club, in conjunction with HAP, Genesee County Parks and Recreation Department, For-Mar Nature Preserve and Arboretum, Commit To Fit, a program of the Greater Flint Health Coalition, and Flint Iceland Arenas, will host their 4th annual “Adventures In Winterland” event as part of U.S. Figure Slating’s National Skating Month at the Flint Iceland Arena, 1160 S. Elms Rd., in Flint Township, on Feb. 1, from 1-3 p.m.

This year’s theme for National Skating Month is “Discover the Magic of Skating”, so in addition to ice skating and other events, we are excited to include “Magician Amazing Mike” with an interactive magic show in the lobby for all ages!

The free event, generously sponsored by HAP, will offer skating, skate rental, skating lessons by members of the Iceland Competitive Edge Figure Skating Club, a figure skating and physics demonstration, snowshoeing lessons (weather permitting), a healthy cooking demo, health and wellness information from HAP, winter nature explorations with For-Mar Nature Preserve and Arboretum and more winter weather activity information from a host of vendors. There will be giveaways and raffles for free Flint Firebirds tickets, and group skating lessons.

Flint Iceland Arenas is the training facility of the nationally ranked Flint Area United High School Figure Skating Team, and several statewide medalists in the Michigan Basic Skills Competition Series. — G.G.
