A Huge "Thank You" to Albany FSC for hosting the ESWG Torch Relay for the Capital District!

Today, Feb 1, the Albany Figure Skating Club was a stopping point for the Empire State Winter Games Torch Relay.

There are two torches that travel to the Games - one that starts in Buffalo, and one that starts in NYC. Today's torch travelled from NYC and arrived at the Bethlehem YMCA.

The torch will continue to Lake Placid.

Skaters from Albany FSC and HMFSC were able to skate with the torch and enjoy time

together as they prepare to compete at the Games this weekend. Both clubs have several skaters at all different levels competing - from youth to adult.

Spectrum News and the Times Union were on-site to take photos and videos. Spectrum News featured the event during the evening news with our own Grace Huffam being interviewed.

We have such talented skaters in the Capital District, it is great that they can come together to represent the region and the sport that they love so much.

Thank you Albany FSC for hosting this event and starting this week off with a special "flare"! We appreciate you!
