The Thunder rolls

Skaters vie for spots in rep tryouts the first week of September.

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.
