Mission Racers named BC Speed Skating Club of the Year

Several Mission residents hold positions on provincial association

The Mission Racers Speed Skating Club was named club of the year at the BC Speed Skating Association’s (BCSSA) annual general meeting held May 31 to June 1.

Awards committee chair Louise McLaren praised the club for its achievements in membership growth and event hosting. In accepting the award, Mission club president Bruce Wenting thanked the neighbouring clubs and the provincial organization for the technical and material support during the Racers’ rebuilding phase.

Mission will continue to be well represented within the BCSSA as Kristina Krieck was re-elected to the board of directors while Vikktoria Davydenko remains as secretary. Derrick Ross carries on his duties on the coaching development committee. While not a member of the local club, Margaret Krieck has once again been named to the provincial and national club and membership development committees.

The Mission club will kick off its 41st season with registration at the end of August with skating to commence Sept. 2. New skaters are always welcome. For more information go to www.missionspeedskating.com.
