John Smith was a mentor and grandfather figure to many Charlotte figure skaters. In the early 1980's Smith acquired a love and special interest for figure skating and the skaters of the Charlotte rink at Eastland Mall. He had suffered a heart attack and began walking the rink as part of his recovery.
Carolinas FSC is proud to host the John Smith Memorial Competition in honor of our "biggest fan."
2023 Competition Dates: 9/8/23 - 9/10/23
