Rye FSC Member is a Dreamer

Congratulations to longtime Rye FSC member Kelsey Bialo on being chosen for U.S. Figure Skating’s U.S. DREAM program for Team USA synchronized skaters. The program supports skaters whose goal is to spread their passion and leadership skills to influence the lives of developing athletes around the nation. Kelsey is entering her 10th year skating with Skyliners Synchronized Skating Team, and has been a member of Team USA for three years! We are so proud of her and wish her all the best as a member of the DREAM program, at Barnard College and as a Skyliners Senior!!

Rye FSC Member Helps Raise $40,000 for Cancer

Longtime Rye FSC Home Club Member Nicky Bernstein, a Barnard College senior, participated in a Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer fundraising event at New York City's Wollman Rink with Olympic champion Scott Hamilton. A total of 55 participants skated 8 miles each (72 laps around the rink) and raised more than $40,000 for the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. Twenty percent of the funds were donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Sharsheret. Kudos to Nicky!! (who is 2nd from the right, next to Scott Hamilton in the middle)

First Annual Shirley W. Bourquin

Memorial Scholarships Awarded

The first annual Shirley W. Bourquin Memorial Scholarships were awarded at the Rye FSC 80th Anniversary Celebration on Ice to two home club members: Karin Nagaya and Kayla Pereira. The Scholarship was established to honor long-time Rye FSC president Bourquin's passion for encouraging the mastery of skating skills. The award recognizes Rye FSC home club members who demonstrate a similar passion for figure skating, and is to be used to defray skating-related or academic expenses. Karin is recognized for her determination to master several disciplines of skating, having passed her Senior Moves and Senior freestyle tests, as well as competing on a National level in Solo Dance. Kayla is recognized for her enthusiasm for skating in both freestyle and synchronized skating, as well as her steadfast volunteerism with Rye Figure Skating Club. Colette Nygren, Bourquin's daughter, presented the awards to Karin and Kayla. Donations to the scholarship fund may be sent to the Rye FSC Founders Fund, attn: Susan Keogh, 7 Reef Club, Hilton Head, SC 29926-1223.
