INVERMERE — The third annual Old Timers’ Hockey Tournament went off this weekend at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena.
Seventeen teams came out to compete in five divisions, including a ladies-only round.
Participants typically range in age from 35 to 70, and hail from various points in Alberta as well as the Columbia Valley.
The weekend event also featured a wrap-up dance and dinner held at the Invermere Curling Centre.
All proceeds from the tournament go to local charities and sport groups. While this year’s tally wasn’t available at press time, last year the Old Timers were able to donate about $5,500.
Winners from this year’s tournament were:
A Division: Calgary’s Flying Failures
B Division: the Calgary Phantoms
C Division: Carstairs Thrashers
D Division: Rangers, from Calgary
In the ladies’ division the Invermere Devils won the day in an overtime shoot out.
