An amazing day for an amazing race! The Aldergrove Bruins Friendship Team 2011 has been preparing for the past two years to travel to Hudson, Wisconsin, to participate in the 2011 Peewee International Friendship Hockey Tournament.
In addition to the many fundraisers, practices and team meetings, the players and their families worked together once more to organize and participate in an “Amazing Race to Hudson” around the Aldergrove area.
The boys were put into teams and given a driver to race from challenge to challenge at Aldergrove Lake Park, a local chicken farm and Thunderbird Show Park on June 5. Organizers thank the facilities for kindly allowing the team to use their premises for the event day.
The teams spent the beautiful day fishing, rock climbing, tent setting and target shooting in the ultimate team building event. When the goal is teamwork, everyone wins!
They wrapped up the race with a family barbecue and an on ice practice to make the day complete.
The team leaves for Wisconsin June 15 to participate in the international tournament with teams from countries around the world, such as Japan, Korea, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand and the host country, the USA.
The next tournament will take place in 2013, with the host country to be determined from one of the participating countries.
Aldergrove Bruins Friendship Hockey would like to send our most sincere appreciation to all of their sponsors and supporters for their generosity. Throughout the last two years many have contributed to the success of the fundraising efforts through sponsorship, bottle drives, a Halloween dance and poker nights, to name a few. The Aldergrove Bruins Friendship Tournament Team 2011 could not have made their fundraising goal without the great support.
