Long before Olympic glory and the cheering of sold-out crowds, hockey was just a game that children from Windsor, Nova Scotia had adapted to play on Long Pond.
Two hundred years later, hockey is more than Canada’s national winter sport – it’s our national passion. This February, you can help us in our continuing efforts to preserve the history of our incredible sport.
The Long Pond Heritage Classic committee in support of the the Birthplace of Hockey and the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society invites you to celebrate the origins of our great game at the 2015 Long Pond Heritage Classic.
Funds raised from the Classic will support the Windsor Hockey Heritage Museum, ensuring that future generations can learn about and experience hockey history.
Join us on February 7th and 8th 2015 in Windsor, Nova Scotia for an historic hockey showdown on the pond where the sport was born.
2 Nights and Days of Hockey, Heroes and History on the Ice:
Friday night – Begin by meeting and greeting other players and fans while taking in the grudge match between the Windsor Fire Department and the RCMP.
Saturday – Come rested and prepared for a great day of hockey – all day long on the Long Pond where the game evolved to become what we know it as today – Canada and the world’s greatest sport.
On-site registration begins at Kings Edgehill at 8 AM with continental breakfast followed by some great hockey on historic Long Pond and the All Star Game.
Saturday Night – A fun yet relaxed banquet as hockey fans and heroes, players and spectators get together for a great meal, some incisive hot stove hockey talk and discussion of the history and games of the day. A sell out each year – this is a part of the event you don’t want to miss.
To register as a player, as a team, to attend the banquet or both – Register today.
