Keeping you posted on todays events Messages from the President Simon Barker, President Kawartha Quarks Speedskating Club This time of year is always a bitter/sweet one for me. Our season is coming to a close but at the same time we have the prospect of warmer days ahead. Our annual general meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 16th, with a 5pm start. This year Dave is hosting the event at his house. We hope you can join us. Looking back, I can tell you that we had a good season. Our membership totaled 53. Eleven of our members raced in both the Regional and Provincial series, and most, if not all, came home with personal bests and some came home with medals. We had three high schools join us, once again, for our Friday morning school program. Bruce and Willy were our skaters of the year, and Maurice was our volunteer of the year. Congratulations to all 3. It takes more than one person to run a club like the Quarks and for all those that helped us this year, a heartfelt thank you. Without volunteers, our members would not get to skate. It is as simple as that. Our 2016/2017 skating season will start in September, after Labour Day, and we look forward to seeing you then. Enjoy the Summer. Simon Barker President April 5th, 2016
