The Long Pond Heritage Hockey Classic is gearing up for its annual fund raising event of hockey on Long Pond, Hot Stove and celebrity banquet. This year’s event is scheduled for January 30th and promises to be another event that you don’t want to miss.
David Hunter, chairperson of the organizing committee and President of the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society commented, “The committee has been working hard the last few months in sorting out details and making plans for the upcoming event. The front-end of events like this always involves more work than most people know but its critical to ensuring the success of the plans you are making”.
This year’s event is the 5th since it began in 2012. The organizers put on a day of hockey on Long Pond with teams and individual players registering to play. The day’s events on the ice are followed by a celebratory dinner banquet in relaxed fashion with professional players providing Hot Stove hockey talk throughout the evening. As part of the fund raising a silent and bidding auction has typically been held.
In looking forward to this year’s event Mr. Hunter closed by saying, “this year we are expecting the event to be a “10” in more ways than one”. When asked for further information he simply added “Details will follow”.
