    Pennington to skate in Anchorage!

    Parker Pennington will be a guest star at the Anchorage Figure Skating Club's Fur Rondy on Ice Exhibition this coming February!

    Guess I'll get my taste of US Nationals that way (Parker and Keegan)

    Fur Rondy is a winter celebration held here in Anchorage. It has historical ties as it was something that fur traders (hence the FUR) did when they'd come in to town to sort of break up the cabin fever. They'd get together and just have a wild party. Now we have a carnival, the traditional fur auction, dog weight pulls, there's the World Championship sprint dog races (ie short distance mushing) that takes place over a 2-3 day period, outhouse races (seriously), and other just ridiculously AWESOME events.

    It's short for Fur Rondeveux (I can't even spell it! LOL). And it's something South Central Alaska looks forward to every year! I can't wait for it this year! It's always so much fun, and there are SLED DOGS!

    never mind... no photos... I was asked to take all of my Rondy pics from the last few years down today by Rondy... *sigh* considering parents are complaining I have no problem with it, but apparently I can't even have Parker's pics up because "he might sue"... so okay.

    Thanks for the post and pics. I think Parker has been such a sportsman. Glad to see him having opportunities to perform.

    he was definitely appreciated here... I definitely loved seeing his skating (which is saying a lot considering I was - and still am - upset about him being asked to be the featured skater when we freaking have Keegan Messing - who ended up not performing )

    he did a really nice job. I can't really compare him to the others because it was a local club show... but I enjoyed his programs...

    His short program at Nationals was amazing. We saw him do it live, and the crowd reaction was incredible!
