The stands at the Rimbey arena were packed last weekend as hockey fans came out in great numbers to cheer on the team of their choice during the PeeWee C provincials.

Silver medal winners, Rimbey Canalta PeeWee Renegades hosted the provincials and eight teams participated.

Hockey Alberta Zone 4 representative, Lane Moore said the tournament organizers did a great job, noting host chairmanShannon Mann deserved kudos for going above and beyond to make the event a success. Moore also gave credit to the many volunteers who gave of their time and energy to ensure the provincials held in Rimbey were a class act from start to finish.

The 2006 Olympic bronze medal winner in the women’s skeleton race, Mellisa Hollingsworth was the guest speaker at the opening ceremonies. During her presentation she showed a short video of her time as an Olympic athlete.

“I know what it’s like to be in a pressure cooker and not win,” she said. “Just remember to play hard and play fair. It’s okay to be emotional.”

Hollingsworth said at the end of the day, fun, family and roots are the three things that really matter.

Mayor Rick Pankiw, who also spoke at the opening ceremonies encouraged the crowd to check out Rimbey while they were here for the Provincials.

“Take some time and enjoy our town. Tour around and check it out. Have fun, enjoy and be sure and come back.”
