Hugh Twa Hockey Day

Hugh Twa Hockey Day raises money for cancer

On Nov. 7, Elk Valley Minor Hockey hosted its fifth annual Hugh Twa Hockey Day in Elkford.

On Nov. 7, Elk Valley Minor Hockey hosted its fifth annual Hugh Twa Hockey Day in Elkford. Hugh Twa played an important role in Elkford as a teacher, principal and minor hockey coach.

Dr. Twa passed away August 2011 after a short battle with cancer.  This day honors his contributions made to our local hockey program.  The day started off with the littlest players from Pre Novice and continued with games from Novice, Pee Wee, Bantams and ended the day with a Midget alumni game.

It was a fun-filled day with the arena filled with fans and players from Sparwood, Fernie and Elkford.  Thank you to all the volunteers, parents, players, coaches, referees and fans.  Special thanks to the District of Elkford and Kootenay Market for supporting this event.  Elk Valley Minor Hockey donated all proceeds from the concession, a total of $1426, to the Canadian Cancer Society.
