The Fort St. John Elks Speed Skating club had a very successful meet in Prince George to determine which skaters will represent the Zone 8 in the BC Winter Games in Penticton this February. Skaters needed to finish in the top two in their age groups to be selected for the games.

In Division 2 the winner Renee Kalkman dominated her races winning all three and looks like a strong medal threat for the winter games.

In Division 3, Yuna Lovell and Michelle Walkman finished first and second to secure their tickets to the games. In Division 4, Nyam Newlove finish second overall and is also headed south in the new year.
