Kids Auditioning For Part In Skate Canada Int'l

About 30 kids will take to the ice rink today, to audition for their moment in the limelight. They're trying out to be flower retrievers for this year's Skate Canada International event.

Cynthia Benson, the co-chair of the local organizing committee tells CHSJ News the flower retrievers pick up what the audience throws onto the ice. Benson says to evaluate the children, they'll be putting them through an obstacle course and judging them on their skating skills, grace and speed.

Out of the 30 children auditioning to be flower retrievers, only 12 will make the cut. Benson says they'll be notified as soon as possible.

A group of teenagers will also be auditioning later today for a part in the medal ceremony.
