Almost that time of year again

It’s getting to be that time of year again.  The biggest ringette tournament in the world is just around the corner.  The tournament will be held January 16-18, 2015.  In just 32 days 190 ringette teams will take over hotels and rinks all across Calgary.

There will be two National Ringette League (NRL) teams playing games during the weekend.  I can’t wait to watch the NRL games because they are amazing games.

Although the weekend will consist of early mornings and long days it is one of my favourite weekends of the year.  There are some really amazing games to be watched over the weekend, and you see how the whole ringette community comes together to put on this tournament.

Right now there is a lot of prep work going on.  All the raffle tickets that every Calgary team participating gets to sell have been sorted and distributed to each quadrant in Calgary.  Things for the tournament are slowly getting into place.  Once the New Year hits the main focus for a lot of Ringette Calgary members will be the tournament with it being the third weekend of January.

Well now to spend quite a bit of time helping get things set up for the tournament.
