The Local Organizing Committee for Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada is pleased to announce the Kroppy Cup presented by Scotiabank Memorial Pond Hockey Tournament is now full. Twelve teams have registered to compete for the Scotiabank Kroppy Cup, with the final team registration received last Wednesday.
Dean Caron, Pond Hockey Coordinator, says “I am thrilled the tournament has filled up and I can’t wait for the big day.” Preparations of the pond hockey rinks will continue and Dean thanks the volunteers and the City of Kenora staff for the work done so far.
On Saturday February 18, the round robin will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Golf Course Bay. All three divisions will play at various times throughout the day. Everyone is encouraged to come out to watch the Youth Division (PeeWee and Bantam), Open Division (Midget) and the Old-timers. Cheer on our local hockey players as the pond hockey tradition is renewed on Lake of the Woods.
The final games, which will be featured during Rogers Sportsnet national broadcast of Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada, will start at 2:00 p.m. at the Kenora Harbourfront on Safety Bay.
The official pond hockey tournament schedule can be found on the City’s website, www.kenora.ca/hockeyday.
