Minor hockey has tough time in Sparwood - with no ice yet - The Free Press Turns 115 Years Old

January 24 1973

Free Press Files

Minor hockey does exist in Sparwood. It is, unfortunately, at a standstill this year due to the unfinished recreation complex. Many of the Sparwood boys are keeping in shape and enjoying the sport this year in Fernie as they wait for ice to become available at home.

This week is Minor Hockey Week in Canada. Surely our Sparwood boys, their association, auxiliary and parents deserve the best of recognition at this time. They are a hard working hard playing bunch and a credit to our community. The best to them in the coming year!
