The Vanderhoof Minor Hockey Association – Initiation Division hosted their home tournament this past weekend.

Proudly sponsored by Pete Giesbrecht at Tim Horton’s, all the TimBits had a lot of fun while the many fans in attendance enjoyed the games.  This year’s TimBits team has done very well so far this season, having won the McBride tournament a few weeks ago and very well at all their exhibition games.  With 24 skaters, there were enough players for Vanderhoof to enter two teams, the Grizzlies and the Kodiaks.  Other teams invited to the tournament included Fort St. James, Fraser Lake, Prince George and Houston.  Thank you to those teams who travelled here for our one day tournament.

The action was very entertaining with great effort being put forward by all the skaters from every team.  The competition focussed on having fun and just letting the kids have a great time.  It’s great to see how so many kids have evolved into such good skaters.  Keep having fun and keep up the good work TimBits!

 

All players walked away with smiles, medals and goodie bags, and some had other awards as well.  Thanks to all the kids for showing such good sportsmanship and having so much fun.  The tournament was very well organized by our parent volunteers.  There were some big winners of our several raffles and the airplane toss prizes.  Thank You to everyone else for helping put this tournament together, for coming to help out at the arena and for watching all the fun.  And a very special Thank You to all of our generous Sponsors who made the tournament such a huge success.
