The video below is from the last village board meeting.  Amy Griswold presents the Pond Hockey Tournament to the board which they approved.  Amy also describes some of the subtle differences in game play,  It will be a great event for players and spectators.  Fast paced multiple games being played simultaneously.  Lots of food, entertainment and my favorite beer LABATT BLUE!

The next video is from the Labatt Blue Buffalo Pond Hockey Tournament. Which should give you a better idea of the game and how it is played.
