Capital City Condors - SPECIAL HOCKEY TEAMS FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE!

Special thanks to Dave Smith and the entire Peterborough Committee!

To Dave Smith and the SHI Peterborough Planning Committee,
   On behalf of Special Hockey International teams everywhere, and especially those heading to your city this week, may I express my deep gratitude for all you have done, and are doing to make this years tournament happen.  I know that we will all be the beneficiaries of your tireless efforts, and we are thankful!
   You stepped into a seemingly hopeless situation, faced the realities of having to mend and heal before even beginning to rebuild, and have managed to pull together something that many thought impossible.  Hundreds will arrive in Peterborough in the next few days, and get to experience the best that these athletes bring, the joy of the immediate camaraderie they demonstrate, the pure fun they have whenever they get together.  The hockey will be great, but we all know that what happens on the ice is just part of the richness of these days spent together. 
   Having recently hosted one of these events, we know a little bit about the hours / weeks you have spent preparing, tweaking, adjusting, monitoring, leading, questioning, answering, and then tweaking some more.  Your investment has been monumental, and you’ve done it so that we can create special memories and experiences which will shape our lives for years to come.  You are giving us an invaluable gift.  We all thank you!
   May our expressions of gratitude as we arrive, be a source of encouragement to you, and our expressions of heartfelt appreciation at least in a small way, reward you for your kindness and dedication to Special Hockey.
   Wishing you all the best this week, we look forward to meeting you and thanking you in person!

Robbie Allen Friendship & Ice Pirates Invitational tournament fun!

HUGE thanks to The Blades and the Kitchener Ice Pirates for putting on two terrific tournaments this past weekend!

We had so much fun remembering our teammate Robbie with all of you in a way that he would have loved: playing hockey. Thank-you for keeping his memory and spirit alive! Special thanks to Robbie’s mom, Dianne, for being there to drop the opening puck. We wish you were still with us, Robbie.

Thanks to the Blades and the Ice Hounds for joining forces with us! It was amazing to play as a blended team and the friendships that were formed and reformed were so very special. We look forward to spending time all together again soon!

Here are a few pics I took, please feel free to email me yours!
