Elks skate into G.P.


Fifteen members of the Fort St. John Elks Speed Skating Club travelled to Grande Prairie this weekend for a one-day short-track interclub meet. Skaters faced some unfamiliar but welcome competition as there were clubs from the Peace River area as well as Edmonton, Yellowknife and Lloydminster. Each skater competed in a total of five races with more personal best times recorded. It was a good showing by all skaters. Next competition is in two weeks in Dawson Creek.

Results for Grande Prairie are as follows:

Division 2
Connor Johnson – 11th – 2 Personal Bests
