Awards handed out

Boundary Minor Hockey Association awards banquet and AGM gave a shout out to Earl Lindsay for his 25 years as an official with the kids.

In a bookend sort of wind-up to the minor hockey season Lynne Wickens made this quilt that was raffled at the awards banquet. At the start of the season her husband Wayne had made a bench out of hickey sticks that sits just inside the dressing room entrance to the arena. The Bohn family won the quilt.
