The Selection Committee, appointed in November, was comprised of CBTF Technical Chair Dana Peteleski, CBTF Coaches Rep Maureen Johnson, CBTF Judges Rep Amy Kalin, Leisha Strachan (MB), Nancy Lightheart (SK), Lisa Pitre (QC), and Beth Swain (AB). The CBTF Board extends its thanks to this group for the thought and consideration they exercised while determining this judging panel.
