Kamloops Long Blades skaters have been invited to a special event on March 8th.  It is during noon hour, so it will limit who will be able to attend, but if at all possible, please do.

Meet your RBC Olympian, Anastasia Buscis
RBC Main Branch, 186 Victoria St
Second Floor
noon – 1:00
Pizza lunch will be provided.

Anastasia will be in Kamloops for speaking engagements for International Women’s Day and we are super lucky that she is making the time for a meet and greet with our skaters as well.  It’s a special opportunity to meet an Olympic Speed Skater and hear her story, ask questions and have lunch.

Please let Coach Sandi know as soon as possible if you would like to attend. She needs to let the organizer know by Tuesday, March 6, but the sooner the better.

We hope we can get a nice group of skaters there to meet her!
