The Montreal Speed Skating club is planning to organize a small competition in Montreal for Masters short track skaters. It will NOT be an official competition, even if there will be officials and timekeepers. The idea is to gather the most possible skaters together to have fun. It is for all kind of skaters (some have competed in the past, and some have never competed). They organized it for the first time last year and it was a wonderful success, simply because of the friendship feeling. Indeed, like last year, there will be two different types of race: one will be for the competitive people, and the other for people who skates for fun (who don’t want to compete because they don’t feel strong enough). First type will be on a standard basis (qualification and finals for different distances). For the second type, every skaters will make a two laps qualification, just to be able to make groups of approximately the same speed for the remainder of the day.
It will be held at the Maurice Richard arena (short track national team training center, the best short track of eastern Canada) on Marsh 23rd from 13:00 to 18:00.
If you are interested in attending, please let Heather or John know, as soon as possible, so that they can inform the Montreal club.
