SHAWVILLE March 10, 2018
A Shawville favourite hockey tournament returned over the weekend, bringing players from across the Pontiac and up from Ottawa for the fast-moving, high action three-on-three games.
The Fish Findlay Classic took over the Shawville Arena all weekend, where 22 teams competed across four divisions in support of the local minor hockey organization.
Event organizer, Darcy Findlay, said that the tournament, now into it’s sixth season, has continued to be enormously popular and only made easier by the help of volunteers and the Shawville District Minor Hockey Association.
“I’m lucky now that minor hockey takes care of [organizing] all the volunteers,” said Findlay. “I’m lucky that I have all the help.”
With their assistance, he said organizing the tournament has become a steady routine, made only easier by sticking to efficiency over quantity.
“We could have grown with more teams, but we decided to keep it as is based on timing,” said Findlay. “We stay with what works and don’t overcomplicate it.”
