There will be a fun-filled speed skating competition Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Nor-Val Sports Centre, site of the sport for the B.C. Winter Games, Feb. 23-26 in the North Okanagan.

Skaters not belonging to a registered club are invoted to skate from noon-2 p.m. subject to signing a waiver, and having the basic equipment (helmet, knee pads, shin pads, gloves, neck guard.)

Entry fee is $10 per skater or $15 per family. Register by e-mail Pete Kapak @ pkapak@telus.net.

“As Armstrong is the speed skating host, for the upcoming B.C. Winter Games, I am attempting to create some exposure to the sport, in that community,” said Kapak, a former Vernon club director.

Kapak’s daughter, Conni, is now skating out of the Regional Training Center, based in Kelowna.
