Ball hockey tourney planned

The Greenwood rink continues to benefit from an intense amount of TLC. Plans are afoot for a ball hockey tourney in July.

The Greenwood Recreation Commission is planning a ball hockey tournament at the Greenwood outdoor rink on Founder’s Day, according to Mike Goddard. He was recently appointed to the recreation commission and is one of the prime drivers behind the rink renewal movement.

The group is chomping at the bit to get at the spring work schedule and hope to have the rink in fine shape before Founder’s Day on July 11.

They are also anxiously awaiting the Kraft Hockeyville announcement that will be made during Hockey Night in Canada on March 14. Several locals have nominated the Greenwood rink and they have optimistically planned a victory party at the Greenwood Inn for the announcement.

“Kevin will have appies and Kraft mac and cheese on special,” Goddard wrote in a Facebook post, adding, “Please come out and show your support for this regional asset.

Please think of this as a win for the entire Boundary region.”
