(February 9, 2007)
To the delight of skating fans in British Columbia, our sport will receive special attention Saturday February 10, 2007.
To mark the three-year countdown to the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) along with community and corporate partners will be holding events throughout the province.
One of the events will be the Spirit of BC Free Skate Day which will take place at many community arenas throughout the province, where everyone is invited to lace up their skates and get on the ice. A special ceremony to mark the occasion will take place at the Surrey Sport and Leisure Complex. Skating fans should check their community arenas.
Skate Canada applauds VANOC’s decision to include skating in their three-year countdown events.
