On January 25 and 26, two short track meets will be held at the Schwan’s Super Rink in Blaine.  The first meet, the Gopher Open, will be held Saturday morning and is a meet for local skaters of all ability levels and ages.  Racing will be from 9-1:00, and volunteers are needed for timing and other tasks.  No experience is needed to be a volunteer!

After the Gopher Open, the American Cup Short Track meet will be held, with racing from 2:40 to 7:00 pm on Saturday, and from 8:40-1:00 on Sunday.  This event will feature higher level skaters from junior through masters ages.  If you’re wondering what short track skating is all about, this would be a great meet to come and watch.  As with the Gopher Open, volunteers are needed and welcomed!  To volunteer for either meet, or for more information, contact Ulrich Fink (from the Twin Cities Speedskating  club).  Phone:  763 425 7074    cell: 612 839 5186

Come out and watch some live short track before the Olympics!
