The Langley Blades have $1,000 extra dollars in their coffers, thanks to Intact Insurance and a top-level speedskater.
Intact Insurance is a sponsor of the Canadian national speedskating team.
For every medal that the national team wins on the World Cup circuit, Intact donates $1,000 to a local speedskating club.
The Langley Blades received $1,000 for Jessica Gregg's silver medal performance in Montreal.
Short track speedskating is one of the most exciting sports to participate in and to watch, according to the Blades, who are. always open to new and experienced skaters of all ages.
The Blades are hosting the Fraser Valley "Funale" at the Langley Sportsplex on Friday March 8 from 6-7:30 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
