The Bracebridge Skating club is gearing up to host a skating competition in early February. On February 8th, they’ll hold the ‘Winter Whirl’ competition, which will draw skaters from throughout Ontario. As many as 200 skaters could take part. It will be held at Bracebridge Memorial Arena throughout the entire day. In advance, the club is creating gift bags that skaters and coaches can take home as a memento. If your business has some swag or a logo’d product you can donate for the gift bags, call Kerry Foreman at 705-645-4441. It’s hoped ‘Winter Whirl’ will become an annual competition, building on the success of this year.
