First thing is first. The volunteer-run rink at Heron Park is now open for the season! Come out for a skate and try it out. Barring rain or unusual mild weather, the rink will be staffed with an attendant on site and the change room open from 5-9 pm on Monday to Friday, 12-9 pm on Saturdays, and 12-6 pm on Sundays. Don’t forget that the Winter Carnival is happening on February 8.
Secondly, we are seeking hockey players to represent Heron Park at the Capital Ward Cup on Saturday, February 1st in the Glebe:
The 12th annual Capital Ward hockey tournament will be happening on Saturday, February 1st, 2020 from 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm this year at Mutchmor Rink in the Glebe. Old Ottawa South Moose, Old Ottawa East Hosers, Heron Park Hackers and Glebe Goal-Getters will face-off on the ice!
The Capital Ward Cup is a friendly game that will bring together teams from four neighborhoods in our ward. Everyone is welcome to come watch the face-off between these neighbourhoods. The game will have two women and two men on the ice at all times to encourage the gender-balanced bench policy.
