What an eventful day... This morning we were told that Winsport had ice plant issues and that unfortunately the tournament would need to be cancelled.
But then... The greatest thing happened...
Winsport notified us that Arena A was still operational, and they would help us to make the event work.
With the help of Winsport we were able to make the best of an unfortunate situation and use the big rink & play half-ice games.
The schedule has been updated, and it remains fairly similar.
There are only 2 teams who will have to play all 3 of their games on Saturday... but as a small consolation for having to put in a long day... those 2 teams will start early on Saturday with the only full-ice game of the weekend.
For us at Raven it has been an emotional day... we were devastated at the thought of the kids not being able to play... and now are encouraged that the show will go on!
We hope everyone understands all the changes due to the unforseen circumstances with the ice at Winsport. So the tournament will look a little different than originally planned (ie half ice games), but at least the kids still get to lace them up & let it fly!
