Live Organ Music!
What's hockey without live organ music during games? Not hockey if you ask us.
This lovely organ was a great and free Craigslist find... Don't forget to say hi to Diane, our local organ player. Tips accepted. Hava Nagala... Havaaaa Naaaagala.
2 Olympia Ice Resurfacers
We picked our first baby (the Olympia) up for a seriously sweet price from our friends in Canada at the Bainsville Recreation Association, near Ottawa, Ontario. Huge thanks to them!
It runs great and we're stoked to bring the tournament epic ice the entire weekend! Nothing can stop us except a down pour of rain... and really thin ice. Jinx.
You can spot the Pabst Zamboni and Olympia also driving in local parade of lights leading up to the tournament, while pulling an organ playing stadium music! Party...

Colorado Avalanche Players Award
Honor? This award has the most!
Totally custom built in our garage with a hand knitted scarf from the tournament directors mother in Brainerd, Minnesota, a handcrafted Avalanche icon, and a recycled license plate from our local junk yard.
The winning team shows the most spirit, passion, teamwork, camaraderie, love of the game, and friendliness towards all other teams... Sure, sounds like a bunch of softies, but you should see the staches on the dudes who have won this in the past!
The past and current Avalanche Players Award winning teams are also awarded tickets to an Av's game together!
