CPFC 2017 Recap

On Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10, 60 pole athletes from all across Canada came together in Vancouver for the Canadian National Pole Championship (sponsored by X-Pole and Presented by Axle Alley Auto Repair). These pole athletes were already deemed some of the best in their province and were now competing to be the best in the country!

The first night was a 19+ show and the fabulous Christopher (a.k.a Symone Says) was our hilarious MC. Prizes were also given away to the audience from Holt's Cafe, Bad Kitty, Tantra Fitness and Halfmoon Yoga Products.
