Oldtimers host tourney

Midway arena was hustling with hockey action last weekend as the 6th annual Oldtimers hockey tournament took to the ice.

The Midway Oldtimers pulled together two tough teams to challenge for local bragging rights this year – the Midway Loggers and the Midway Ranchers.

There was non-stop adult rec hockey action at the Midway arena on Family Day weekend as 11 teams met for the 6th Annual Oldtimers Hockey Tournament.

This year there were six men’s teams and five women’s teams.

The men’s teams were the Wenatchee Cherry Pickers, Osoyoos Rattlers, Nelson Roasters, Midway Loggers, Midway Ranchers and Grand Forks Boundary Electric.

Ladies teams were the Midway Ice Maidens, Wenatchee Bad Apples, Nelson Diggers, Grand Forks Betty’s and Kelowna Ice Dragons.

To fit everyone into a schedule that ran from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon each game was set up for two 25-minute periods.

The Midway Oldtimers and the Midway Ice Maidens host the tournament each year. The four elementary schools in the West Boundary get in on the action too, filling banners with some great art.
