Barb and Craig at 2005 Annual Franklin Blades Competition

Burley Family Skating

My name is Craig Burley, and I'm pictured here with my wife Barbara, at the 2005 Annual Franklin Blades competition held in Franklin, Massachusetts. Barb's a much better skater than I am, partly because she skated in her youth (when she got as far as passing her 4th Figure Test and Pre-Gold in Ice Dancing), but mostly because she skates and works so much harder at it than I do!

I began seriously figure skating (including taking lessons) in October 2001. I've passed the Ice Skating Institute (ISI) Freestyle 1 test and my US Figure Skating (USFS) Adult Bronze Freestyle (FS) test. My wife has, as an adult, passed her ISI Freestyle 5 and USFS Adult Silver Freestyle, Adult Gold MiF, and Intermediate MiF tests. In USFS events, she usually competes in the "Masters" events, rather than the "Adult" events, due to USFS restrictions on participation by skaters who, like her, passed certain figure and/or dance tests as youngsters.
