The Rainy River Figure Skating Club was busy rehearsing on Sunday, March 1 for their upcoming Blades on Broadway shows Saturday March 7 at 6 p.m. and Sunday March 8 at 2 p.m.
There are about 40 young people in this year's spectacular from Rainy River and neighbouring communities.
The hustle and bustle at the Rainy River Arena located on Broadway Ave, of course, was hectic. Skaters finding lost bits of equipment; new costumes being tried on; new decorations going up; busy parents frantically organizing the stars.
It was a little like trying to herd cats.
But everything is coming together and nerves were being calmed as the popcorn popper and the wiener roaster at the canteen were worked to capacity.
Advance tickets ($7 adult, $4 youth under 18) can be purchased from Board members, at Beaver Mills, Wood's Bakery, and Rainy River Drugs or Ronnings in Baudette or at the door ($10 each) Make sure you mark your calendar and attend.
You'll be able to brag you knew these future Olympians when they were just starting out.
A professional DVD of the show will be produced by Tom Foley of Fort Frances at $25 per copy, as well as a souvenir programme.
For a little extra excitement the Club will hold a 50/50 Draw, but you must be present to win.

See you on Broadway!
