What an ex­cit­ing week­end for three of our young skaters on the last week­end in Jan­uary when they took part in the Red Deer Fun Skate Com­pe­ti­tions with over 320 skaters. Tori James and Cam­ryn and El­liAnna McDougald were in com­pe­ti­tion in the event and came away with lots of hon­ours. Tori and Cam­ryn with Kait­lyn Wood won gold on the team com­pe­ti­tion. Tori won gold in Dance, and three bronze awards in El­e­ments, Free Style and In­ter­pre­tive. Cam­ryn won two more gold awards in El­e­ments and In­ter­pre- tive, sil­ver in Free Skate and bronze in Dance. Elli-Anna won sil­ver in the Team event, gold in Free Skate and two sil­ver awards in El­e­ments and Dance. Way to go girls. We are proud of your ac­com­plish­ments and look for­ward to a suc­cess­ful fu­ture for you in skat­ing.

Spencer James is re­cov­er­ing from some bro­ken bones and will soon be re­turn­ing to hockey. On March 1819 his hockey team will be host­ing the Ban­tam Provin­cials. We look for­ward to hear­ing more about this later.

Happy birth­day this week to Tan­ner Poland on Fe­bru­ary 11, Keith Wil­son on Fe­bru­ary 12, Michael Dun­calf on Fe­bru­ary 16.
