Encourages Residents to Engage in Outdoor Fun
CANCELED DUE TO WARM WEATHER (had been rescheduled to February 18, but is now cancelled)
On Saturday, February 18 (Rescheduled from February 11), residents will grab their sticks and show off their hockey skills at the second annual Spencer Park Pond Hockey Classic. The Classic promises to be a fun and friendly three on three outdoor hockey tournament for non-professionals, taking place at Spencer Park from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. This adult hockey competition will feature neighbors rivaling one another for a chance to win bragging rights and local glory.
Teams consist of 5 players who compete without goalies in a 3 on 3, round robin format followed by a bracket championship. There is also the Bender Bowl playoff for the (not so hot) teams in each division. A minimum of three games are guaranteed and prizes will be awarded to the top two teams and the winner of the Bender Bowl.
Prizes include gift cards donated by Perani’s Hockey World. There will also be an accuracy shoot out, chuck-a-puck event and autographed puck raffle open to everyone in attendance. Sponsors include Premier Sponsor Perani’s Hockey World, Howie’s Hockey Tape, NiceRink and the Troy Sports Center.
