The first ever Long Track Mini Meet for the Border Blades happened on January 9 outside on the oval. The skaters definitely appreciated the warmth of the new Speed Den. We are so proud of all our skaters who braved the cold to have some racing fun on the oval. Kids from Active Start all the way up to Junior attended, and we saw a lot of smiling faces in the Den!

Fire on Ice is happening tomorrow, and we hope all the kids are getting excited for a fun day of skating.
Tentative schedule for the day: Fire on Ice XIII Schedule
Skater Divisions: Fire on Ice XIII Divisions
Please note divisions may change if we have scratches in the morning.
Dressing room assignments are as follows:
Division 1-3 – field house dressing rooms. There will be 4 rooms to share.
Division 4 – room 10.
Division 5-6 – room 4.
Division 7-8 – room 8.
Division 9-10 – room 10.
We have chosen to assign dressing rooms by division rather than team. We are hoping this will help the kids make friends with skaters from other clubs, as well as make marshalling easier.
Thank you very much to the individuals, families and businesses who generously donated to support our skaters and our meet.
