William E. Gilbert Sr Memorial Club Competition

Bill Gilbert Sr served as a volunteer with the PHFSC for many years.  He became a board member and served as President, Treasurer, and Test Chairman for several years.  Volunteering his time at the ice show also kept Bill busy.  After going through years of training, at his own expense, Bill became the first US Figure Skating judge from the PHFSC. He spent many hours traveling around the Michigan and at home judging.  After he retired from judging Bill helped organize the Club Competition which now bears his name.  

The Club Competition is for Port Huron Figure Skating Club member skaters only.  PHFSC skaters who have not competed in the Eastern Great Lakes Regionals Competition that year can participate. If your skater has never had a private lesson of any kind, for example skaters in the Learn to Skate Program, they will be assigned an ice captain for four weeks before the event to help them prepare for the competition and learn their elements.  The entry fee is the only cost for this event.  Winners of the Club Competition also earn an additional number in the ice show.  This is a great introduction to the competition aspect of figure skating and also a great way for our skaters to showcase their freestyle programs at a local event for family and friends.  

The 2020 William E. Gilbert Sr Memorial Club Competition will be held Saturday, November 14, 2020 at Glacier Pointe.  

In addition, the William E. Gilbert Sr Memorial Club Competition trophy is presented to the skater that gave the most inspiring performance at the Club Competition.  The winner is chosen by the competition judges.
