Going Back in Time

Close your eyes and breathe deep, feel your skate touch the ice . The cold rush of air almost taking your breath away. You find yourself skating with those from days gone bye. Like the great Bobby Orr or Dryden or Dan Maloney, or tough guy Dave "The Hammer " Schultz. You open your eyes and find yourself standing on Gull Lake and ready to make your mark on the ice and in a memory that will live forever. Just pure hockey. wild hockey.

Huge news from the front office of Northwoods pond hockey classic.

The owners of the North Woods pond hockey classic have decided to be extremely generous for the 2018 tournament. I was just informed to announce that there is to be a $100 cash prize to each winner of the adult divisions. I was also informed that Northwoods pond hockey classic would cover registration for those winners in each of those divisions for the 2019 Northwoods pond hockey classic. As a small bonus each winner from those divisions would receive some sort of swag from Northwoods pond hockey classic, and each division winner will be able to take home the trophy for the year and bring it back in 2019 to have their name plate placed on the trophy. If you have any questions please use the contact us tab on the website and one of our staff members will get back to you clarifying any questions you have. I do believe that this is the first time I have ever seen a cash prize for all division winners. All I have to say is this is a Happy New Year for sure thanks to the front office personnel at Northwoods pond hockey classic.
