  • In honour of our 50th Anniversary this year, Section will be flashing back through some of our favourite memories! Several of our super-talented Section volunteers have been chosen to officiate at the highest level, the Olympic Games! Dennis McFarlane judged at three! (1980 in Lake Placid, 1988 in Calgary, and 1992 in Albertville). Marge Berezowski judged one (1984 in Sarajevo), and Jodi Abbott judged two! (2010 in Vancouver and 2014 in Sochi). Most recently, Jeff Lukasik was in PyeongChang in 2018! We are so proud of our Officials and these impressive accomplishments. #Niftyniftylookwhosfifty #50andfabulous #fiftyyearsonice #fbf #50yearsonice #awalkdownmemorylane
