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.
