Just a quick note to let you know about a really cool event that’s coming to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Hundreds of hockey players and fans will converge on tiny and picturesque Meredith Bay, NH for the first annual New England Pond Hockey Classic. I’m fortunate enough to have a cousin who works for the tournament’s primary sponsor, so I’ll be proudly representing Amoskeag Beverages in the hotly contested Open Division. We play at 10 and 4 on Friday, then again at 11:20 and 2 on Saturday. Playoffs are Sunday, if we’re still standing. Hope to see many of you there, and please let me know if you’re making the trip!
All the information you’ll need for the weekend can be found here:
Never been to a pond hockey tournament? Neither have I. But here is a video and a flickr gallery of some recent outdoor hockey festivals to whet your appetite.
