Thursday School Days

Thursday February 28, 2008

The day started out at -18 celsius, so the rink staff thought the class from St.Rita's wasn't coming. But at 1 pm the temperature had climbed to -12, and it was brilliant sunshine. So their principal let them go. The rink staff had stayed at the office for a meeting, when they got the call from the teacher -- "we're here, but the rink change house is locked -- where are you?"

So Michael Monastyrskyj jumped into a cab and got to Campbell as fast as he could to let the kids in. Then he put on a big pot and everybody had free hot chocolate. The kids put on their skates and played around on the ice, in the snow, and back and forth in and out of the rink house -- checkers, chess, cards, skating again, joking, talking -- a very nice afternoon at the rink.

February 17 shinny tournament

Shinny tournament day for 15 to 20 years old. The forecast was for freezing rain turning to just plain rain all day long. There were a few breaks but mostly the forecast was right. But the tournament went on anyway -- seven teams, two refs, one guy thrown out of the game for raising the puck again after he was given a warning. The hockey was FAST, and wet by the end of the day.


Chris Pacheco organized the tournament
