Bill Begg ONZM
Head Coach South Canterbury Roller Sports Club.
I would like to convey a big thank you for your support that has helped our club to be a premier sport in the region, and be a club the South Canterbury people can be proud of.
With your support we once again staged the “Tour of Timaru” bringing over a top world competitor Frenchman Elton De Souza and also two Czech Republic skaters were also present for the event. It was great for our younger skaters to see someone they knew and helped them during his stay in Timaru.
We will once again stage the Oceania speed skating championships in Timaru over Easter 2018.
It's great we can stage these events with strong club administration & coaching. However, in order to help and maintain a culture of success we need support from our valued sponsors and supporters. Your on-going support is much-appreciated.
