Gold Test Certificates and Pins

Skate Canada recently changed the process for skaters to receive
Certificates and Pins when they have achieved a Gold Test.  The Clubs are
now responsible for printing from the Skate Canada template the Certificates
and e-mailing Skate Canada for the appropriate Gold Pin.

To date the Club has been catching up on this important task.  The
Gold Certificates and Pins earned by Minto skaters since the summer of 2015
have now been produced and received.  They will be available to the skaters
in the Club office.  In future the Club will be keeping up-to-date with
these important items of recognition of the achievements or our skaters.
