Intact Day on Skates was held in Hawreluk Park during the Family Day weekend. The Lloydminster Border Blades accepted a $1000.00 cheque from Intact Insurance Podium Tracker program after Charles Hamelin’s Silver medal win for the 500m in Montreal, QC.
We would like to extend a big thank you to the Lloydminster Regional Health Foundation Gala and the 2012 Hartnell-MacArthur Celebrity Golf Classic. We received much needed funding from these two local events, allowing us to build our ‘nest egg’ for the construction of a building for our long track.
Thank you to the Rotary Club of Lloydminster and BAR Engineering for your donations going toward additional helmet covers and skins for our club.
Thank you to Sask Lotteries and Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation.
The Lloydminster Border Blades would like to thank our mat sponsors from the 2011/2012 season. Their support allowed us to have the crash mats we needed and allowed our skaters to be really fearless this year.

Intact Insurance supports Canada’s Olympians as well as young and aspiring champions who skate with local speed skating clubs in communities across Canada. With the help of the fastest woman on ice, Catriona Le May Doan, Intact Insurance fosters the interest and supports the development of speed skating among Canadian youth through the Podium Tracker program.
Currently in its second year, Podium Tracker is a contest where Intact Insurance rewards local speed skating clubs $1,000 in cash and prizes every time a member of the National Speed Skating Team places on the podium during the 2011-2012 World Cup or World Championship.
Our club has been selected to receive funding from Intact as a part of this program for the 2011/2012 campaign!
