spectators -- bring your blankets

If the heaters in the stands start to affect the ice quality, heaters will be turned off.  Please dress warmly or bring a blanket just in case.  If it warms up outside (above -10C), it’s going to get cold in the rink!

Current forecast is for daytime highs between -2C and -1C.

At the tournament

The arena concession booth will be open throughout the tournament.  In addition to our regular menu, we will have tournament specials such as chicken ceasar wraps and baking (pies, etc).  Our concession is staffed by volunteers.  All proceeds go directly to the arena to cover operating expenses.

Skate sharpening will be available at the arena during the tournament.

We will have a raffle table, silent auction, player board, twoonie stick and 50/50s.  50/50s will be drawn for each game.  All other raffles will be drawn at noon on Saturday.

Some of Elk Point’s downtown businesses are offering discount coupons for the tournament weekend.  Please pick up your flyer at the door and visit our sponsors!  Their continued support allows us to host fantastic events like provincials!

There is an outdoor skating rink immediately to the north of the arena parking lot, so if any sibling tag-a-longs want to bring skates and helmets (recommended), they are welcome to take advantage of it.  (Nothing fancy - the fire department floods the skateboard area every winter to create the outdoor rink).
