This is the 2nd Annual Gary Tremblay Memorial Tournament. After the passing of the former president of Leduc Minor Hockey Association, it was decided last year to honour his memory by changing our annual Family Day Initiation/Tom Thumb Tournament to the Gary Tremblay Memorial Tournament, not just because he was the former president but also because he was such a huge part in organization what better way to honor him and his memory then naming the tournament after him. On Sunday, February 14 we will be doing our O’Canada as well as a presentation to the family. This will be taking place at approximately 11:45 AM at the Leduc rec center. We have a total of 22 teams with the age group ranging from 4 to 6 years of age, now there may be the odd 7 year old, so we are expecting a great turn out. The teams are from Blackfalds, Winfield, NW Edmonton, Millwoods, Wetaskwin, St. Albert, Drayton Valley, Confederated. We also have 3 teams from Stony Plain as well our 10 Leduc teams. Unfortunately there are no links to the tournament times however the tournament will be running from Saturday, February 13 at 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and again on Sunday, February 14th from 11:45 am to 4:00pm. Gary devoted his life to his kids and to not just their love of the game of hockey but his love of the game as well. We have had a great support from our sponsors, from the water bottles and trophies that each boy and girl get to take home with them, to a donation of travel vouchers, to 3 great hockey schools donation of a paid week hockey camp from each school. That is just to name a few of the great support we have received from all the businesses from around the Leduc and surrounding area. So please come out and support our future hockey players and cheer them all on!
