One group that has had a difficult on and off again season was the Cochrane Figure Skating Club. COVID restrictions delayed the season and then lockdowns prevented continuation until recently.
Even though the number of participants was down this year, all had the opportunity to hone their skills and enjoy ice time.
Trudy Owens of the club noted “We decided to run the program anyway to promote skating and also to give the children an outlet for their energy.
