    I suspect Ryan will likely cancel, due to the rescheduled Worlds.

    Ice Dreams at the Edge Arena, Bensenville, IL on April 30th. Starring Johnny Weir, Brandon Mroz, Agnes Zawadzki and Gregory and Petukhov plus local skaters. I believe I read somewhere that part of the proceeds were being given to the Japanese Red Cross.

    Not listed on the Skate Canada appearance page since he's not a team member any longer, but Elvis Stojko is scheduled to skate in the show at CPA St-Romuald on April 2, I believe.

    The Minto Skating Club in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada is 106 years old this year.

    From 1926 to 1967 the Minto Follies show was an annual event and it ran again intermittently until 1997. The women and girls who skated in the shows were named the "Folliettes" and, in addition to the annual shows, they were invited to skate in a variety of locations outside of Ottawa. In fact, in 1952, Mayfair Magazine praised them as "the first and best chorus on ice".

    On May 7th the first ever Minto Folliette reunion is taking place and the events will include a recreated Minto Follies show at the Club. The show will include Minto skaters of all levels (and ages). Tickets (at $20 for adults & $15 for children under 12) will be available from the Minto Skating Club office at 2571 Lancaster Road, Ottawa.

    Speaking of the Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville: Was just there yesterday for ISI Synchro Championships. For the gala/exhibition last night, the lovely Mary Beth Marley came back for a hometown appearance. She skated to "Don't Rain on My Parade" (ugh; just not my cup o' tea), but boy, she is a skater with SPART. Just projected a lot of energy. Will continue to enjoy watching her and Rockne as their partnership continues.
