ALIDA - It was a very busy weekend at the Alida rink. The Alida Wreck hockey team held their annual hockey tournament this past weekend with five teams participating. The final game in the B event was played between Storthoaks and Oxbow where Storthoaks won 4-1 for the bronze.
The last game in the A event was then played between Bellegarde and Alida with Bellegarde defeating Alida 4-3 in a very close game, which resulted in Alida receiving silver and Bellegarde the gold and their name on the tournament trophy.
The Wrecks also held both a Chinese and silent auction throughout the day. This was very well supported and winners were declared at the end of the day. The rink kitchen was also kept busy and they served a special meal of perogies and smokies throughout the day.
All in all the day was very successful for both the hockey team and the rink kitchen. Congratulations to the winners and hopefully we’ll see you all again next year.
Sunday breakfast was held with Kitchen Group 2 being at the helm, and they served up approximately 35 breakfasts. It was a quiet morning for the kitchen workers and I’m sure that this is due to the late night at the rink on Saturday. The Breakfast Challenge mark was not broken so it will be up to Kitchen Group 3 next Sunday when they are at the helm.
The next event at the rink will be the annual Oilmen and Farmers Bonspiel on Feb. 3 and 4. Make sure to get your rink entered by calling Margaret at 306-485-7245. Hope to see you on the ice.
