Pond Hockey Classic is back

Logan Lake's Pond Hockey tournament is back after a year's absence.

While maybe not everyone appreciates it, the recent arrival of the cold weather is great news for the Logan Lake Pond Hockey Classic. The lake is now completely frozen over and as long as the beautiful winter weather continues, within a few weeks the ice clearing crew will be on the lake setting up the seven rinks.

After the crushing disappointment of having to cancel last year’s tournament due to unfavourable ice conditions, the Logan Lake Pond Hockey Classic is back with a vengeance for 2015! Infused with a $30,000 grant from the Logan Lake Community Forest Corporation (www.llcf.ca) and some new members on the Executive, the organizers are set to bring you what may be the best event ever from Jan. 16–18 in Logan Lake. Registration is open from now to Nov. 30.

As an added perk with the increased funding, the tournament organizers plan to maintain the rinks for the duration of the outdoor skating season so more people can enjoy them.

As always, the group is in search of more ice clearing volunteers and scorekeepers.
