The Hay River Speed Skating Club is back on the ice and preparing for its annual camp that traditionally marks the start of the season.

This year a delay getting back on the ice has pushed the camp back to the end of the month.

The event from Oct. 31 to Nov. 1 is open to almost anyone to come and try their hand – or in this case legs – at speedskating.
