The 21st Annual Max Ice Hockey Tournament competition was the closest ever seen earlier this spring with teams matching up in skill and speed making for some great entertaining games. Emerging from the Max Division were the returning champs Cellar Dwellers. The Dwellers battled hard all weekend on the ice and even harder in the beer gardens and dance floor.
In the Ladies Division, the Kootenay Cougars managed to stay out of the penalty box to grab another title while the Moose Knuckles came out of nowhere to pick up the Gentlemen’s crown. The Competitive Division capped off the weekend with the Dekes of Hazard winning the title in the last game of the tournament and celebrating on centre ice. More importantly, Saturday Night’s dinner and dance was a huge success raising over $2,000 for charities in our community. The Max Ice team would like to thank all players, volunteers and ice staff that were involved in our 21st year.
So far we have been able to help the Special Olympics, Selkirk College Nurses, the Aurora Wright scholarship fund as well as continuing our local Max Ice bursary.
