Pond Hockey Tournament wonderful experience
the first time, I had the opportunity to attend the hockey games on the ice at French Fort Cove.
What an experience!
On all three days, I went to drink in the atmosphere. It really was a community event in which everyone gained. The weather
was perfect. Food and drink was for sale. Parents took their children with the young ones being transported by sled. People
met and talked. It was a social occasion as well as a sports one.
To me, it was incredible to see half ton trucks drive
on the ice where, in the summer, there is nothing but water. I think that it was good that most people had to walk some distance
to get there. The exercise benefited everyone.
The Rotary Club and volunteers who organized this and worked at the
event deserve credit. The future of New Brunswick was showcased by the young people on the ice; it was most reassuring.
