The annual Northwood Hockey Christmas Skating Party was this afternoon and everybody seemed to have a great time. My old partner and past president, Ken Sutton who I haven't seen in 3-4 years dropped in. Tom Petrie gave away a $100 stick to a player who had brought in their skates for one of the 2 free sharpenings we gave them. Parents brought baking and snacks for the kids, there were some small draws for toques and sweatshirts and lots of tunes. And of course St. Nick made an appearance. Ginko dropped in but he missed 'hockey papa', I can't imagine why.
