Good luck to the following members of the Border Blades who are travelling to Calgary to compete in the Alberta Indoor Long Track Championships this weekend. This competition involves developmentally appropriate distances that include scaled down longer distance races for younger skaters. The top skaters in each single year T2T age category will earn spots for the Canadian Age Class Long Track Championships (CALT) which is held in Quebec City (on the same weekend as AB Winter Games!). There is also an open Junior, Senior and Master ISU Olympic Style division that will race a 500m, 1000, 1500m, and 3000m.
