Spare Equipment

I have a favor to ask. I have a friend who really wants to play this year. She has never played before and has ZERO equipment. She is willing to pay for any used equipment that we can scrounge up. So if you have anything sitting around that you are looking to get rid of. Please let me know so we can get her suited up – she’s about my size in terms of fit.
You guys rock!

Kalso Tournament Looking for Players

Hi All,
      Anyone interested in a joined team for this Kaslo tournament below??? It sounds like fun. Lorna made it extremely clear that this is a BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE tournament. That is the level that they want attending. The Blueliners will not be there. The Nelson Drillers, and Kaslo LADIES and ???? She said that she could arrange it so that we play Sat and Sun and so would only have to stay Sat night. Let Tracy know ASAP if you are interested. Please forward this to any one else of interest.

Karma Halleran gave me your contact information, and she says you both have hockey teams in Trail. I wanted to invite both of your teams to a tournament in Kaslo, Feb. 3-5. The AfterBurners (Kaslo men's Oldtimers' team) are hosting it, and it should be a blast. There would be 4 men's teams and 4 women's teams. Three games each, beer after the games, plus a party with live music at the Kaslo Hotel. There's also talk of t-shirts and pizza, but I'm not sure of the details there. It would be great if you could join us.

Hope you can make it!
