Sign up for Racers speed skating

The Ridge Meadow Racers will be holding fall registration for the upcoming speed skating season on Sept. 8.

The Ridge Meadow Racers will be holding fall registration for the upcoming speed skating season on  Sept. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m at Planet Ice.

Ridge Meadow Speed Skating Association board member Mae Shupe said whether you are starting as novice learning to skate or an experienced skater wanting to improve your speed and skill for hockey or figure skating, the club offers a variety of levels of training.

With the fall season of the Ridge Meadow Racers is right around the corner, this year promises to be an exciting season, said Shupe.  The 2016 B.C. Winter Games will be held in Penticton this February and the Fraser Valley zone 3 qualifier will be held at Planet Ice this December.

“The Ridge Meadow Racers will be looking at putting a stamp on next year’s games,” said Shupe.

During the 2014 B.C. Winter Games, six Ridge Meadow Racers were on the Fraser Valley team and four took home medals.

The team is coming off a successful 2015 season, where they brought hardware home from the Canada west championship held in Selkirk, Manitoba.

Tahlon Flamma, Janie and Annabelle Green all found medals hanging around their neck.

Flamma captured two bronze medals in 200 metre and 2,000 m points race in the  male division.

The Green sisters also did well at the provincials.  Janie came home with two gold medals in the 200 m and 400 m in the T2T13 and a silver in the relay.  Annabelle Green also won a pair of silver medals, including one in the 200 m for her age division.
