Race Night #2, Sunday, November 30, at 6:00 pm, Thelma Crowe Arena, Canmore Rec Centre
Our 2nd club race night of the season is scheduled for Sunday, November 30th starting at 6:00 pm. This is an opprotunity for all our skaters to gain racing experience in a non-threatening, supportive, and fun environment! Our club holds four of these club race nights throughout the season to provide our skaters the opportunity to feel the excitement of racing. There is no cost to Banff and Canmore club members. The intermediate/advanced training will begin after racing at ~ 7:00 pm.
We need lots of volunteers to help with running the races so we need everyone to pitch in. Experience is not necessary. You will be trained “on the job”. These race nights are where every parent gets the chance to learn how to be a timer, a place judge, etc., and it really is a fun way to get to know the other parents in the club! We also need snacks and refreshments for the skaters after the races. Here is the signup sheet for volunteers and refreshments: https://www.volunteersignup.org/3R84W
If you have any questions about the competition or volunteering, please contact Pat or Tanya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
11th Annual Canmore Ice Racing Challenge – Saturday, December 6th, 2014
Come race on the fastest ice in Western Canada, the only arena west of Quebec, where a T2T skater has skated under 38 seconds in the 400m!!
Skaters will be divided into two groups, skaters on the 100m track and skaters on the 111m track. Active Start, L2T and T2T will be competing on the 100m track. If there are enough ISU Junior skaters to make their own division, they will skate on the 111m track, otherwise they will skate as T2T on the 100m track. The Masters skaters will compete in the Masters Ice Racing Challenge (MIRC), racing the 1000m, 500m and 1500m as part of the competition, with a 3000m race offered as an exhibition race at the conclusion of racing if time permits. All Masters events will take place on the 111m track, and Masters will skate first after floods. If you have any questions please contact Ian Mellors at email@example.com.
If you are available on race day, or if you have a skater competing, please sign up for one of the volunteer positions. Any questions on what the different position are, please ask. For new people, the best positions are Timers, Place Judges and Assistant Clerks, click here to sign up, https://www.volunteersignup.org/8AWK4
We are also still looking for volunteers for moving mats. Please contact Ian if you are available on Friday December 5th to pick up from Banff or Sunday December 7th, to take back to Banff.
