Seattle Skating Club is turning 75 with an ice show; Celebrating 75 Years. This professionally choreographed show will feature performances by local talent, past and present homegrown champions, and a performance by Jozef “Jumpin’ Joe” Sabovcik, Olympic Bronze medalist, and European Champion. Seattle’s own Rosalyn Sumners (Olympic Silver Medalist) will host a Meet & Greet from 3:30-5 pm on Saturday between shows with other Olympians such as the Kauffmans (’64 & ’68 US Pairs Olympians) and the Askham-Jones Team (’88 British Pairs Olympians).
In 1936, the Seattle Skating Club joined the U.S. Figure Skating Association and a legacy of skating in the Seattle area was born. Over the years, members have celebrated Olympic & World medalists, and mourned the loss of club members in the 1961 US World Team plane crash. The club has also changed rinks, hosted Regional, Sectional, and International events and brought opportunities to Seattle area youngsters and adults. Seattle Skating Club is the home of World & Olympic Champion, Rosalynn Sumners and US Figure Skating Hall of Fame Members, Ron & Cindy Kaufmann (inducted in 1995).
