We’re taking hockey back to the pond again when the second annual Door County Pond Hockey Tournament takes place on Kangaroo Lake Feb. 7, 2015. Registration opens Sept. 1st at 6 pm CST.
Tournament founder Brian Fitzgerald worked with the Baileys Harbor Community Association to get the event off the ground in 2014. After a great inaugural tournament that saw the DC Pickers crowned champion, organizers are planning for an even larger event in 2015.
Eight rinks will be cleared on the lake,including one for family and recreational play. A beer and food tent will be erected on the ice as well.
The tournament will include six divisions in 2015. Those divisions include:
- Men’s Open A (Pro, college, or junior level players)
- Men’s Open B (high school, organized, or recreational players)
- Classic (40 and over)
- Legends (50 and over)
- Women’s Open
- Juniors (age 12 – 16)
The event is organized by the Peninsula Pacers, the group behind the Door County Half Marathon, Door County Beer Festival, and the Peninsula Century Ride. The Baileys Harbor Winter Carnival takes place the same weekend, with a food and beer tent, special hikes at the Ridges, time trials on the ice (snowmobiles, trucks – anything with a motor!) and specials throughout town.
Rosters, waivers, and $280 team registration fees must be submitted by Monday, Feb. 2. You can also email Brian Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
