The Women of Winter Annual Shinny Tournament

Six years and going strong! Who’d have thought that a little shinny game would produce this amazing, annual event for us?

Every year we work hard to balance the teams (thanks Tracy) but no one can predict the endless injuries and illness even on game day. But there was no lack of players waiting in the wings and who were willing to play again and again.

Every one of you played like champions. The ice was perfect until the final game and the snow was a game-changer. Back and forth goals, pucks disappearing in the snow, and a couple of tumbles; it was anyone's game.

The clock was ticking but in the end it was Team C who won the bragging rights for the tourney.

Congratulations to: Rosalie Bellefontaine, Andrea Daley, Anne Daley, Elizabeth D’Amico, Tatiana Kurchira, Kathryn Morrison, Jennifer Thome and Nathalie Ouellet.

As always a big thank you to all the volunteers, fans, photographers, our refs and timekeeper (who retired this year), our security staff; Sawyer and Avery, the staff at Dufferin-Grove Rink, our sponsors, Linda the zamboni driver, and you, the players, for making this event a huge success.

I look forward to seeing you at The Women of Winter Outdoor Shinny Tournament 2012.
