Icehawks News from the Nest - December 29, 2012

It's been a while since I've written, so I've got a few things to cover. 
Geary Holiday Tournament
This weekend, and Northwestern Hockey is hosting a 6 team tournament for Squirt B level teams. The tournament kicked off yesterday and continues today and Sunday at the Canterbury School, despite the prediction of bad weather. Feel free to stop by the rink this weekend for some exciting tournament action! 
State Tournaments
Speaking of tournaments, all travel teams (Mite thru Bantam) will be participating in the year-end Connecticut State Tournament. For our Tier 3 ("A") teams, the exact weeknd and location is already posted on the CHC website ( For the Mite teams (A & B), Squirt B, Peewee B, and Bantam B, the weekend dates are shown but the exact location won't be known until sometime in February.  Here's a link to the CHC tournament information:
High School Hockey
Many of the players that start out on the ice at age 4 or 5 end up playing hockey for one of our local high schools. New Milford high school plays their home games at Canterbury and Shepaug High School plays their home games at the Gunnery. The schedules and results are both shown on our website under the teams tab. Or, for more complete information, visit and look up each high school.

We took orders at the beginning of the season but we have arranged for a second order to be placed by January 10, 2013. The water bottles cost $15.
