  • Things that make us happy: Celebrating our amazing volunteers. Section Official, Pam Chislett is retiring from International judging this year! Pam's skating career began in Edmonton in the 1960's and she began judging over 50 years ago. Her qualifications include Canadian Referee, International Judge in Singles and Pairs, and ISU Judge in Ice Dance. Celebrations began at the Skate Canada International in Kelowna last October 2019. Pam was recognized by Skate Canada President, Leanna Caron, as well as her peers. In January, she judged at the 2020 Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne SUI. She was scheduled to do the Arctic Winter Games in March and a Mexican International in May, but unfortunately, those events were cancelled. What an outstanding career by an outstanding volunteer. While Pam won't be on judges stands internationally, we are thrilled that she will still be at events in our Section! Congratulations, Pam!
