October 8th Update

Good Tuesday morning everyone
Welcome to another week of speed skating!

1/During our regularly scheduled practice time on Tuesday October 15th we will be having a mini meet at St Margaret’s center.  All skaters are welcome to attend (Thursday night skaters also). It will be a fun event to attend and a great chance to prepare for the Citadel Cup!  Volunteers will be needed!  Please be at the rink before 7!
2/The Annapolis Valley Speed Skating Club Fall Mini-Meet will take place on Saturday, October 19, at the Credit Union Centre. The entry fee is $20 per skater. It’s a great chance for new skaters to get some experience racing and for experienced skaters to get a few races in before the Citadel Cup. I will register skaters for the event so please email hfxspeedskating@gmail.com by October 10th with the title of Valley meet in the heading if you will be attending.

3/Halifax Regional Speed Skating Club (HRSSC) is pleased to announce that the Citadel cup will be taking place on October 26th and 27th, 2019.
