Lloydminster Celebrates Grand Opening of Speed Den

Residents and specials guests were invited to attend the grand opening of the Speed Den on Thursday, February 9th at 6 p.m.

“The official opening of the Speed Den has made the long-awaited dreams of the Border Blades a reality. We have already seen a large increase in the number of skaters thanks to the Speed Den,” said Border Blades Chair, Charmaine Stephens. “This is an exciting time for the Border Blades as we continue to grow Long Track in our community.”

The Speed Den, located at the Husky Energy Speed Skating Oval, will be utilized as a dressing room for skaters.

“A heated building in a central location is imperative to our organization and the kids we support,” said Alison Fulkerth, Chair of KidSport Lloydminster. “We believe this will allow us to provide equipment to children more efficiently, so all kids can play. We thank the Border Blades for partnering with us and leasing a portion of the building to us.”

Mayor Gerald Aalbers praised the community partners that supported the project with funding, supplies and volunteer efforts.

“I would like to thank the Border Blades, KidSport, and all community sponsors for their contributions to the Speed Den,” said Mayor Aalbers. “The Speed Den complements the Husky Energy Speed Skating Oval and enhances outdoor recreational experiences for our community.”
