Our Border Blades had a great weekend of skating in Calgary this weekend. Leland L earned a silver medal in division three! Congrats to all our skaters, Leander L, Samantha L, Erika P, Ashford S, Spencer S and Gabe W.
It was a cold night, but our skaters kept warm racing at our second Mini Meet! Thanks to everyone who braved the cold to help make the meet a success.
The Border Blades had one skater representing the club on the new Red Deer Oval. Congratulations to Emily J! This is Emily’s second year with the Border Blades.
Great job to Ysabelle B, who was the lone Border Blade representative at the Saskatoon Long Track meet this past weekend!
Our next Mini Meet of the season is coming up on February 7, 2019 from 5-8. Please follow the link below to sign up for a volunteer position. Training will be provided if you are new to the job.
Reminder: If you have not already filled out the Meet Sign Up Page, or need to make a correction, please do so. This helps ensure that the races are fun and fair for our kids!
This weekend one Border Blade made the trip to Calgary to compete on the Olympic Oval ice. Congratulations to Samantha L on a great weekend of skating, and getting some new PBs.
The Border Blades will be doing a bottle drive in the new year, so please start saving your bottles now!
Date: January 5th, 2019
Place: Meet in the parking lot by the Speed Den (at the SSC by the outdoor Oval)
Kids to wear Border Blades toques/jackets if they have one
We are doing things a little different this year. We are still coordinating the bottle drive from the outdoor oval Speed Den however once a load of bottles has been collected it will then be unloaded right at the Lloydminster Bottle Depot. No more loading a large trailer! After unloading your truck you then return to the Speed Den for your next route map.
NOTE: Arrangements have been made with the Lloydminster Bottle depot to accept bottle donations all year long. Let the staff know that the bottle money is to go to the Lloydminster Border Blades Speed Skating Club. This DOES NOT replace the bottle drive.
The Border Blades will be hosting their annual Santa Skate on Monday, December 17 from 5:30-8 on the Husky Energy Oval. Have a great time skating while visiting with the jolly man in red.
Please feel free to invite other family members and friends to this event!
Note: no sticks or pucks will be permitted on the ice.
Skaters from across Alberta and Saskatchewan showed off their racing skills at Fire on Ice today! We hope all our out of town visitors enjoyed their time in Lloydminster.
Thank you to all skaters, officials, coaches, parents, volunteers, and meet organizers for helping us to run a smooth meet. We couldn’t do it without you!
Thank you very much to the individuals, families and businesses who generously donated to support our skaters and our meet.
