Our membership this past year totalled 45, comprising 11 racers and 32 recreational skaters. Healthy numbers.
Six of our skaters went to the Provincial B/C Championships back in March and all 6 came home with personal bests and one repeated as a provincial gold medalist.
That said, all 3 of the skaters recognized this year as our ‘skater(s) of the year’ were not racers. They were individuals who worked very hard week in, week out to improve their skating skills.
It takes more than one person to run a club like the Quarks and I am fortunate to be surrounded by some very talented people. So to everyone that gave me help this year, a huge thank you :))
Frances has agreed to stay on as our treasurer and Dave as our registrar. And I will remain as your President for another year.
The current plan is to start skating the second week of September, as we did last season, and to have the equipment room open the week prior for those who want to pick up skates.
