Highlights from March 4, 2016

  • For the second time, snowshoeing organizers were struggling to deal with a lack of snow in the snowshoeing track. The call was put out for local volunteers and more than 80 people arrived, shovels in hand, to move snow onto the track.
  • Athletes took on the -20 degree (with wind chill) weather all in stride, and competed in snowshoe and cross country with enthusiasm and frozen smiles.
  • Figure Skating wrapped up with dozens of terrific performances in front of a thrilled and appreciative audience.
  • Team Guelph continued its hot play in floor hockey, along with strong efforts from Team Saskatchewan and Team BC.
  • A high-level speed skating clinic was attended by Special Olympics skaters from across Canada and featured instruction from special guest Catriona Le May Doan.
