Sturgeon Point Shinny

Well, it looks like it might be a green Christmas this year in Sturgeon Point.  That also means no skating on the lake.

Fortunately, the annual Sturgeon Point Shinny is happening again!

Here are the dates, times, & places:

Wednesday Dec 28: 2-4 PM – Bobcaygeon Arena
Thursday Dec 29:  3-5 PM – Fenelon Falls Arena
Friday Dec 30: 3-5 PM – Fenelon Falls Arena

For those of you who haven’t participated before, we use 2/3′s of the rink for shinny and 1/3 for recreational skaters, little ones and UN observers. We play 5 minute periods split between younger skaters (roughly 12 and under) and the rest of the motley crew. This keep the little ones out of harms way and the old guys get a break every five minutes to catch their breath.

Please share them with anyone you think that might be interested in joining in the fun and games.

This a great deal, just $20 for families $10 for singles / day.

Having seen the pace of play in years gone by, we recommend the use helmets for one and all. Trust me you won’t be the only one out there sporting protection.

See you on the ice.

Special thanks goes out to Larry Thomas who has been instrumental in the organization of this fun event each year.

More information can be found on our facebook page or calendar.
