Skate into the books

Our brutally cold December is paying dividends: the river trail in Winnipeg is opening this weekend, and folks at the Forks are hopeful that within a couple weeks it will be the longest in the world. In true Winnipeg fashion, we are turning it into a contest to ease our inferiority complex with our peers -- or at least the media is ("gloves are off"). I don't care about that, but it will be nice to skate up to Voyageur Park.

Also keep an eye out for an attempt to break the record for the longest continuous chain of skaters. I'm sure you won't be able to miss it, once the local media gets wind of it. Just imagine ... you could be part of something so prestigious, right along side the world's largest Wobble Board Ensemble.
