With some great 4 on 4 hockey action from all divisions the 2010 Western Regional Pond Hockey Championships have wrapped up. 2011 promises to be a great event with a maximum registration of 50 teams, and the event team has agreed to host next year's and all subsequent years events during Rossland's Winter Carnival.
Opening night was a blast. Cold temperatures and great ice conditions kept everyone on their toes as teams vied for dominance in the first games of the Western's. Tower lights provided for a great atmosphere as players new to the sport realized there's a lot more to Pond Hockey than meets the eye. Word to the wise - with no icing or off-side calls....pass more and skate less!

After our team hand shoveled over 24,000 sq' of ice today we're pleased to report that the main tournament sheets are coming back into fighting form. A big thanks goes out to Raymond, Greg, Payton and John for their efforts today, and naturally to Mother Nature who dished out a balanced meal of fresh powder at the ski hill and consistent -3 temperatures in town.
The Western Regional Pond Hockey championships have been rescheduled until Jan 22-24th, 2010. Current weather conditions are supposed to change and a cooling trend should prevail producing temperatures in the range of -3 to -7, which are ideal for making ice and doing all things winter.
