SPEED SKATERS INTERESTED IN PROPOSED FAMILY SKATING TRAIL

Etobicoke Speed Skaters will be attending the September 22nd. meeting at Father John Redmond where the design for the skating trail will be presented at 6.30 p.m. Their obvious interest in using the trail for practice takes the original concept of family, recreational skating further than what was originally presented. It is important that this meeting be well attended.
Check out their blog.

"Speed" skating is competitively skating at high speed - to accommodate practice, the trail would need to be shut down for family skating which, we were told, was the purpose of the project and the expense it will require.

One would have assumed that family skating wasn't going to be at all hours anyway!

Looks like an opportunity for added money for upkeep of the park!

Get a grip people...

You are assuming that all speed skaters are racers. I speed skate as a recreational activity and I am a lot slower on my speed skates than when I am on my hockey skates.
