The St. Lawrence Rapids Speed Skating Club held its annual ability meet at the Memorial Centre in Brockville on Saturday.
There were a total of 39 local skaters among the contingent of 140 young and not-so-young participants in the day-long competition.
This was the 10th of 13 ability meets that take place throughout Eastern Ontario during the speedskating season beween October and April.
It’s an event that provides an opportunity for all levels of speedskaters to build times for the seedings and rankings in the Ontario Cup competitions.
