The Flying Elbows hockey tournament made its return to the Shawville arena over the weekend for the first time since the pandemic hit. Organizer Will Armitage said that they pared down the size and length of the tournament this year to 18 teams across two divisions. He said that organizing went fairly smoothly, though they didn’t seek out sponsors from the community like the typically do.

He said that they had quite a few volunteers working behind the scenes to make sure everything went according to schedule. Like years past, the Shawville Lions operated the bar in their hall on the arena’s upper floor.

Typically the tournament proceeds have gone toward upgrades to the arena, such as the new score clock. Armitage said that this year they were raising money for members of the local hockey community: the family of Guillaume Breton, a young father who died in a vehicle collision on March 19. The link to the Gofundme campaign for the family can be found here.

In the A Division, the Micksburg Bulls took down the Danford Lakers in the finals on Saturday night to hoist the James A. Smith Trophy, while the Farmers Mob prevailed over the Benders in the B Division to claim the newly created Bryan Murray Memorial Trophy.

Armitage thanked all the volunteers and participants that helped make the weekend a success, and said he hoped to see them around next year.
