For what we are told is a relatively sleepy town we haven't stopped. After all this, the infamous Stanley Cup of NHL fame arrived under security at Hockey Central to celebrate the Pond Hockey Tournament that was played on the Lake. They also had speed skating and endurance events. Not to be overwhelmed by the hype we had to join in. Joey was fortunate enough to meet Grant Fuhr (one of his favourite all star players from the Edmonton Oilers who won 5 Stanley Cups) and the boys truly loved seeing the cup itself.

On the way out we met Kyle a police officer in dress uniform so not being shy to ask for a photo here we are with a Canadian Mountie.

Thinking we needed a drink we decided to go along with our new buddies Mel and Tim to the pond hockey dinner at the arena. Again we met lots of famous people who we had no idea were famous but loved us (well mainly Greg) for our accents.

Thanks Sylvan for another great weekend and the beautiful snow!
