Greetings, pond hockey fanatics!
The date has been finalized and anticipation is building . . . the puck drops for the eighth-annual U.S. Pond Hockey Championships in only 161 days
Set for January 18-20, the 2013 U.S. Pond Hockey Championships will take place once again on beautiful Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis.
Following is information about registration, tournament updates, and other pond news...
Registration opens promptly Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. C.S.T. (Lake Nokomis time) at uspondhockey.com on a first come, first served basis.
Player check-in will take place the evening of Thursday, January 17, 2013.
The game schedule will be posted at the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships website and sent via email to players approximately one week prior to the event. Please note that games will begin on Friday, Jan. 18 as early as 8:00 a.m. Please make travel plans accordingly (plan to arrive by Thursday so we can have a few beers together at check-in). Please note: Sorry folks, but we cannot accept schedule requests.
We're looking for sponsors to partner with us to help fund the greatest pond hockey tournament in the country and make it a great success! As you know, our goal is simply to break even while giving money to our charity partners (a line item in our budget) and to keep the pond hockey tradition alive and kicking. If you or anyone you know would be interested in becoming a USPHC sponsor, please contact Travis Shives, Director of Business Development at (763) 222-2406 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's all for now. So start your dry land training, call your ringers and build your dream team for the 8th Annual U.S. Pond Hockey Championships!
