The Ridge Meadows Racers have been chosen to be part of the annual RBC/CBC Sports Day in Canada Event on Nov. 29 – which also happens to be the date of the club’s Jingle Bell Cup meet this year.
The club will receive $2,000 for their particpation, and will be featured on CBC Sports.
The broadcaster is coming to town this week to pre-tape some interviews and action at practice that will be shown before and during the live Sports Day in Canada show.
Then, they will send photos and live tweets of the Jingle Cup.
CBC Sports National said they chose the club because they were community-oriented, served all ages, and had the added interest of Olympic coaches working with both elite and non elite skaters in a community setting.
