20th World Pond Hockey Championship Now in 2022

20th World Pond Hockey Championship Now in 2022

20th anniversary of tournament in Plaster rock will now be celebrated in 2022

Team registrations were set to begin Tuesday. Although that bought organizers some time to see what would happen over the summer, they knew a decision had to made, Braun said.

"At the end of the day, with COVID-19 lingering around still, obviously, rules and regulations as they pertain with travel would make it very difficult for anyone outside the Atlantic bubble at this point to come into the event in February."

The tournament remains a fundraising activity for the community and the money raised now is used to help run the facilities and programs the event helped build. The organization remains in good financial shape, its weekly 50/50 draw supports the local fire department, and other things will continue.

"It's an unfortunate situation, but none the less we believe it's the responsible thing to do."
