The sounds of skate blades on ice resounded amongst hockey moms and dads, with requisite Tim Hortons coffee, along with little brothers and sisters and not a few unaffiliated onlookers as hockey players from 9 to 17 took to the ice in the penultimate tryout for the junior hockey Thunder.

Tryouts started Tuesday, Sept. 4 and ran through to Sunday, Sept. 9, with two teams holding tryouts for and hour and a half each of the four weekday evenings and all four holding tryouts for two hours each on Saturday and Sunday.
