Finally snow has fallen on Michigan and that means the lakes will be freezing soon and pond hockey will be keeping hockey fans busy during this NHL lockout.
January 18th-20th The Lake Fenton Winter Classic is returning!
There will be eight divisions this year including a women’s division – you just have to be 18 or older to participate in this years event.
“Last year was the first year for the Lake Fenton Winter Classic. We had many obstacles to maneuver around to pull off a successful tournament,” says Sean Lapham, the Lake Fenton Winter Classic Tournament Director.
“This year we have been selected as one of only four featured events for Labatt Pond Hockey in Michigan,” announced Lapham, “A huge honor since this is only our second year…none of this would have been possible without the support of volunteers and sponsors such as Labatt, North American Breweries, Fabiano Brothers, Yamaha, The Fireplace, Lakeside Market, The Moose, and the Fenton Township Fire Department.”
Doubling in size in it’s second year the pond hockey tournament is looking to have 64 teams in 8 different divisions: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Open Rec., Tin Foil, Women’s, CoEd and 50+
The winning team from each division will get their team name engraved on the Des Crowley Memorial Cup and receive free entry into the 2014 Lake Fenton Winter Classic.
Registration closes January 9th so get your team together and sign up today!
