Friends and Family Invitational Day
Saturday March 22nd marked our second Friends and Family Invitational outing where the membership of the BC Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association invited special guests to give Skeleton a try. 33 sliders took part, most for their very first encounter with the sport of Skeleton. From Maple Leaf Start height athletes speeds ranged from about 90 km/h to just over 100 km/h. Lots of excitement, and some nervousness was evident as they took to the track. We hope everyone enjoyed this experience and we also hope to see many come back and slide with us again. Thanks for indulging - you were all amazing!
