SHAWVILLE Jan. 20, 2017
Over the weekend, hundreds of avid young hockey players and their families descended upon the Shawville Arena for the first annual iteration of the Pontiac Provincial Bantam/ Midget Tournament.
Organizer Scott Lemay explained that the weekend was put together to coincide with the popular Pontiac Provincial Atom/Peewee Tournament, which will take place for the third year on Jan. 26-28.
“We have about 250 kids participating this weekend and there’s another 250 for next weekend,” he said. “A lot of organizing, a lot of logistics go into it. We have a committee and everybody has jobs to do.”
