Members of the Prince George Blizzard Speed Skating Club will give city residents a first-hand look at the sport starting at 1pm and a learn-to-speed-skate session with certified coaches from the club will begin at 1:15pm. The club will have a selection of skates, especially smaller sizes, for those interested in trying long blades. And nordic blades will also be available for those with cross country ski boots.
The Outdoor Ice Oval Society is thanking all the volunteers for their hard work in preparing the ice and the City of Prince George for its support - Enhance PG helped to fund today's event.
