Dennis McFarlane

Dennis McFarlane Award - $500

Dennis was a national competitor in singles, pairs and dance. He reached the highest level available in the International Skating Union (ISU) when he achieved success as a World and Olympic judge and referee in all three skating disciplines. After leaving the international judging world, Dennis continued to judge and monitor skaters in the AB-NT-NU Section. Dennis truly loved the sport of figure skating and was also working to make it better for skaters and officials.

The Dennis McFarlane Award is presented annually to the highest placing pre-novice ladies skater representing Alberta at a National Event.
