    Unhappy Mariposa Gala - Barrie

    I was in touch with the Mariposa Club re when the Gala would be this year.

    I am sad to tell you that there will not be a Gala this year but hopefully in 2014.

    I will sure miss this event for it is the event of the season in this area.

    It's shocking. I wonder why they had to give it up this year. Could that be because of the financial situation in the area?

    Is there a financial situation at Mariposa? I thought it was one of the best training places in Canada.

    Maybe the audience attendance just isn't there? I went a couple of years ago and it was mayyyyybe half-full. I know they didn't have the star power that show that they did the year previous (Sale & Pelletier, Kurt, Jeff, etc.). Could be getting skaters is the problem.

    I think the club is fine. I went to the show last year and there were lots of empty seats. I would guess that like many skating events, tickets just aren't selling and when it's a charity event, you don't want to put it on if it's not making money.
