The GSC is working with Purdys Chocolatier, just in time for Christmas!
If you would like to support us though purchasing some very sweet Christmas gifts for friends, family and yourself, please visit Purdys’ website – https://www.purdysgpp.com/647830. After you’ve signed in, you can buy their amazing chocolates as well as invite others to do the same.
You need to do it before November 26th! Orders will be ready for pick up at the Gloucester Skating Club office on December 6th.
As you may know, the Gloucester Skating Club (GSC) has a unique relationship with the Iqaluit Skating Club (ISC) – we support them in their efforts to bring CANSkate programming and more to our fellow skaters up here in the north. We occasionally get to visit them, and if you recall, they sometimes come down south to visit us – last year’s Spring Festival Skate for example.
We came up here last week to work with the coaches, skaters, parents, Program Assistants (PAs), and Board of Directors of the Iqaluit Skating Club.
The weather was cold…there was a mini blizzard on Saturday. We really felt like we were in the North!
Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. They made us feel like we were part of their northern community!

GSC and ISC share a common passion for skating, and we are so happy to have been invited up North to work with these wonderful people!
Goodbye Iqaluit – we hope to see you again soon!
