The club’s next competition is in Kamloops in the middle of February.  Buttenham said with that much time off, they are resetting training plans back to new and more difficult jumps and spins.  Come mid-January, they will take another look at what elements are in the skaters’ programs and start to refocus on training the program.

Their next test day is in Oliver on Dec 13.  The clubs winter programs begin Jan.4, 2016 and registration is currently open at www.glengarryfsc.com.
