Skating club vies for visit from Browning

The Red Deer Skating Club is in the running to get a visit from one of the best figure skaters to ever come out of Canada.

The club is one of 50 across the country trying to win a one-day seminar with Caroline native Kurt Browning.

Skate Canada, which saw three of its members win medals at the recent Winter Olympics in Vancouver, launched the ‘Show It Off for Skate Canada’ contest to encourage grassroots skating clubs to really promote the new Skate Canada logo, which launched in June 2010.

Second prize in the contest is a visit from a national team athlete at an event hosted by the winning club.

A jury of judges, appointed by Skate Canada, will select the grand prize

winning club based on a predetermined set of qualifications, including

impact, innovation and impressions.

The jury, made up of Skate Canada CEO William Thompson, Skate

Canada President Benoît Lavoie and World Champion Jeff Buttle will also select the winning club for the national team appearance.
