New Years Day Ice Battle a Success!

Final Game:  Peter Watchers 8 vs Flint Tropics 3     So, the champions of our first Ice Battle at Crystal Fieldhouse is Peter Watchers. I had to ask about the name and the response was that when they played together in juniors they would refer to spectators as peter watchers.
Well, as a spectator for the day, it was great hockey to watch! The ½ ice boards worked great, thanks again GFHA! The game was played cross ice. We did have one injury to Broc Lemieux. He broke his ankle during game 4. Broc skated for Soloman Plumbing. He is in good spirits, recovering well. We hope to see him on the ice soon!
Special thanks to Jeff Dennings, Jordyn Wainio and Annabelle Ward for their help during the day. Also, thank you to my lovely bride, Sue and Annabelles friend Wes for making the food run!
