The skaters ranged in age from 8 years to adults and events included solo skaters, pairs, dance and synchronised teams.

Maureen Forrester won Adult Interpretive Bronze III Ladies.

This is the premier event in New Zealand and countless hours of often unsociable, early mornings at rinks around the country saw finest talent on display this past week on the ice.

Local results:
Maureen Forrester (Cockle Bay) won Adult Interpretive Bronze III Ladies; Tracy Danbrook (Pakuranga) won Adult Elite I Ladies; Black Ice (East Auckland) won the Mixed Aged Synchronized; Titanium (East Auckland) won Basic Novice Synchronized.
