Skaters cut impressive figure at Bay Arena competition
The Conception Bay North Skating Club welcomed skating clubs from Clarenville to St. John’s when it played host to the Eastern Divisionals competition at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts on Jan. 25-26. Some 160 skaters took to the ice over the two day event, some vying for the chance to travel to the 2014 Newfoundland and Labrador Winter Games in Clarenville on March 1-9. Hundreds of people came out to enjoy some fantastic skating and competition. The Compass was there for the event and offers this sampling of shots from the second day of the competition.
