2014 Central Areas Championship

This was held on the 24th and 25th of May at Palmerston North. Due to some extreme weather crossing the country some of the International grades long programmes for free skating needed to be cancelled. This was due to leaks in the building roof causing water on the rink surface. A good call by the organisers and officials which potentially saved injuries to skaters. Thanks to the organisers, officials, judges and competitors. Results for UHRSC skaters are <HERE>
