Canada Skates - 100th Skate Canada National Championships

GovernorGeneralShowOn Wednesday Jan 8th His Excellency The Right Honourable, David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, hosted a reception at Rideau Hall to mark 100 years of the Canadian National Championships.  As Minto Skating Club hosted the very first Championships some of the Minto Skating Club Board of Directors were invited to attend this important event.  At the end of the reception there we got to enjoy a wonderful show choreographed by Jeffrey Buttle which featured Shawn Sawyer and some other young skaters from the Ottawa area.  Minto skaters Analisa Love-Tedjoutomo, Sheena Hardwick-Kelly and Jessica Desjardins along with former Minto Skater Brennan Martin performed beautifully!  We will be lucky enough to see this number again over the weekend on the Rink of Dreams and again in the Gala Performance at Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday.  Congratulations to all who worked so hard (and quickly) to pull this piece together.
