Fundraising Bottle Drive

The Border Blades will be doing a bottle drive in the new year, so please start saving your bottles now!

Date: January 5th, 2019
Time: 10:00-2:00
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.

Family Santa Skate

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.
