...on January 13, 2018 at the Kanata Recreation Complex.

The event was a success thanks to the many volunteers who worked to plan and keep the event running smoothly.

A huge thank you is due to the competition committee and the skating parents who gave so generously of their time and assistance! From the smiling faces at the registration tables to the clear and swift posting of entry lists and results, to the lovely touches of welcome packages for the skaters and skate cut-outs on the walls with the skaters' names on them, not to mention the handsome podium...Glen Cairn Skating Club has a lot to be proud of!
