Some of the Hampton skaters enjoyed the Saint John FUNdamentals meet this past weekend at the Charles Gorman Arena. The skaters participated in a speed skating style meet with a few FUN races added. For some of these skaters it is their first time skating in a meet. All of the skaters received ribbons for each race they participated in. One of our skaters, Xander, received a first place for every race he competed in.
Congratulations to all our skaters!
Next meet on the Atlantic calendar is in Charlottetown, PEI this weekend.
