Elks dominate B.C. Long Track Championships

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – A large continent of Fort St. John speed skaters were in Dawson Creek last weekend, braving temperatures of minus 15 before windchill to compete at the B.C. Long Track Speed Skating Championships.

Emma North, Rene Kalkman, Yuna Lovell, Brook Braun, Mathew Mitchell, Nick Guliov, and Josh Telizyn all won gold medals.

The Elks Club also won the competition’s Club Trophy with over 30,000 points, more than double any other club in the province.
