Juvenile Ice Angels in a large category skated beautifully on the Saturday to achieve 1st place and then came back again on Sunday to give an even stronger performance, holding on to first and bring home a Gold medal.

Intermediate Black Ice skating in a qualifying event to carry on to Nationals, being held in Burnaby on Feb 20-22, had an exciting skate to Spice Girls. They fought hard and came home with the Bronze medal.
