Pick of the Day: Skate Canada

James Brotheridge is our resident figure skating expert at prairie dog. Me, not so much. But I do know that from Nov. 30-Dec. 4 Regina is hosting a mega-huge competition at the multi-ice surfaced Co-operators Centre at Evraz Place.

According to Skate Canada (www.skatecanada.ca ), over 500 skaters will be competing in Novice, Junior and Senior categories. It’s their only chance to qualify for the 2012 Canadian Figure Skating Championships and 2012 Skate Canada Junior Nationals. In Canadian figure-skating, the stakes don’t get any higher than that. So check it out of you get the chance. And if you see J-Bro there, say Hi from me okay?

One thought on “Pick of the Day: Skate Canada”

  1. Best I’ve got: I once met a figure skater at the old Eaton’s in the Cornwall. My mom used to skate as a kid, and she was really excited to meet this guy. I can only remember her having to say to me again and again that we weren’t going to see Elvis Stojko. She really needed to hammer it home to me that this wasn’t going to be him.

    I apparently couldn’t wrap my head around the thought that there was more than one male figure skater out there. I knew there were at least two female figure skaters, because Weird Al sang about Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan in the Crash Test Dummies parody “Headline News”.
