JANUARY 30, 2023:
THE POND HOCKEY PLAYOFFS AT LAKE PARAN, scheduled for February 3-5 is CANCELLED.
due to warmer weather temperatures most of January and not finding out that LP was a possible location both which effected registration totals, we have decided to Cancel. As of today, January 30th, 39 teams fully signed up, so we regretfully make the decision to re-market the event this coming May, book it to full capacity of 100+ TEAMS over the summer. Additionally, we had 33 more teams submit Pre Registration but did not commit over the last 4 weeks, mostly watching the weather and ironically the weather incoming looks great the next 10 days. MOTHER NATURE !
REFUNDS / MORE:
Teams who submitted a full team payment can opt for a Refund or staying signed up. Teams that stay signed up GET TO SELECT THEIR ICE TIMES instead of having their game times randomly drawn by a computer as the 2024 event gets closer. I
In addition, each player listed on your Teams Registration gets a FREE $50-75 OFF
any skate purchase valid until Dec 31, 2023. NEED A SKATE ? TEXT US, its a nice perk!
