Arena opens Saturday

New ice and a new season at the arena beckons - free public skate this Saturday from 2 to 4.

Wayne Wickens of Midway took first place at the Rock Creek and Boundary Fair in the Lawn Ornament category with this Hockey Stick bench. He donated it to the Boundary Minor Hockey Association with the idea that they auction or raffle it off— but they have decided to keep it for display at the Midway arena.

There will be a free public skate this Saturday, Sept. 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. This will help condition both the ice and the skaters. The music will be on and the concession will be open.

Boundary Minor Hockey is busy getting their schedule in order and the kids will soon be having regularly scheduled scrimmages.

Minor hockey is eager to find a few more referees this year. If you are interested get in touch with them. Click on the contact link on their website at
