Spectacular it was - 16 ball hockey teams and 350 hungry guests were treated to
a weekend of fun and fund-raising during the 1st Annual Port Stanley Sailors 3 on
3 Ball Hockey Tournament and Fish Fry Spectacular, held this past weekend.
It's no secret that the Port Stanley Arena’s sound system is in need of an overhaul.
Announcements are hard to understand at times and music, when it is played, is not
the best sound quality. Three major user groups of the arena are working to fix
that problem. The Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association, Port Stanley Jr. C Sailors,
and the Port Stanley Skating Club are collaborated to organize this 3 on 3 Ball
Hockey Tournament and Fish Fry to raise funds to replace the outdated sound system
and bring a new era of entertainment to the Port Stanley Arena.
I would like to thank all of the local businesses, volunteers, ball hockey players,
and fish fry attendees that helped make the event a success. A special shout out
to Jackson's Fish Market, Port Stanley Foodland, Shaw's Ice Cream, Godfather's Pizza
and the Municipality of Central Elgin for their significant contributions.
With your support over $3,500 was raised to towards our new sound system for the
Port Stanley Arena.
