Last weekend, Fernie Minor Hockey hosted a tournament for kids ages nine and 10. Six teams from Calgary, Medicine Hat and Cranbrook were invited to attend with Fernie making up the seventh team.

“A tournament like this takes a lot of planning,” said Kari Mertz, an organizer of the event. “We have to send out the invitations and wait for the teams to reply and we count on parents to volunteer. All the local businesses in the community have been very supportive and have donated prizes for the raffle table.”

The tournament went well and Fernie had a couple of close games that ended in victories putting them in the final game against their rival team, the Cranbrook Royals. Fernie pulled off a victory to win the tournament 6-3.

According to Mertz, the organizers made up baskets for each team that took part in the competition and every player received dog tags for participating.
