It’s a mad dash to the puck at the 32nd Annual Goldpanners Tournament.

32 years and still going strong

With all the ice soon to be cleared out of the Twin Arenas, our local teams skated for one last hurrah.

It was another successful season of hockey, with all the ice soon to be cleared out of the Twin Arenas, our local teams skated for one last hurrah March 27 – 29.

For the 32nd annual Goldpanners tournament, 24 teams – 18 mens teams and six womens teams – laced up their skates, preparing to take on the competition, each team eager to claim the victory.

Out of the six local teams competing, it was the Quesnel Investors Group who secured one of four winning slots in the mens division. Our local skaters took the win in the C+ mens division.

Also bringing in a win in the mens division were the Vanderhoof Screamin’ Beavers, 100 Mile Canadianators and the PG Stars.

Winners in the ladies division were the Vanderhoof Vipers.

The tournament fundraiser brought in $3,400, going to three benefactors: Quesnel Cancer Society; Quesnel Special Olympics; and the Dunrovin Society in Memory of Brenda Campbell, wife of long time referee Ross Campbell of Quesnel.

“We would like to thank the Quesnel Twin Ice Arena crew for limping our old rink along the whole weekend,”  Richard Lindstrom tournament director said.
