Athletes from Huronia, Barrie, Central Bruce, Durham, Oakville, Grimsby, Etobicoke, Georgetown, and Parry Sound were welcomed by local Olympians Angela Schmidt-Foster (Canada, Nordic skiing – second from left) and Ute Norak-Martynko (Germany, Nordic Skiing – second from right). Midland’s Mountainview Ski Club hosted the distance events, and the oval was prepared at Penetanguishene Secondary School. The event received donations from various local businesses, and lunch was served by the Midland Civitan Club. Congratulations athletes on a job well done, and best of luck in your bid to qualify for North Bay in 2015!
