Old Stars take centre ice this weekend

100 Mile House annual hockey tournament a classic for players and spectators alike

The 100 Mile Old Stars 25th Annual Hockey Tournament will have the South Cariboo Rec. Centre tied up with great hockey action in the 35 to 50 years-plus range, Nov. 9-11.

There are three divisions with a total of 12 teams scheduled to play in the tourney and league co-president Shawn Reid promises a lot of action and excitement on the ice.

“Even though we’re kind of old, we still like to have some fun. It brings guys together who haven’t seen each other for a year and there’s lots of camaraderie on the ice.”

Visiting teams are coming from Kamloops, Salmon Arm and Merritt and look for team names such as Free Radicals, Rednecks and Cavaliers.

The first puck drops on Nov. 9 at 6 p.m. and the last game of the evening starts at 11:30 p.m.

On Saturday, the action begins at 7 a.m. and goes until after 5 p.m.

The tourney wraps up on Sunday with the first game beginning at 8 a.m. and the last one at 4 p.m.

Because this is a round-robin tournament, there will be no finals.

The Players’ Lounge at the arena will be open throughout the weekend for refreshments.
