I have to admit, I kinda forgot how much I like hockey. I refereed, coached and was a director of the Lincoln Minor Hockey Association for a lot of years, something I set aside with all the other commitments involved with politics, jobs, kids, etc.
So, this weekend, I have spent time at the new arena complex, watching our minor midget team (coached by fellow Councillor JD Pachereva) in the new early season tournament. This afternoon, at 2 and 3 pm, our Beamsville teams will be playing in the championship games of bantam and minor midget.
Two things — what a great facility 🙂 I knew when it was being built that it had features that would work well. I spent time this morning checking out the various angles and spots in the arena, watching the game. Even got to watch my brother in law, Tim Davies, referee a game (I will not critique his performance 🙂 )
Anyway, it is a great place to watch a game and I intend to be spending a lot more time watching our local teams.
Congrats to our LMHA for a terrific tournament.
