The next fundraising event for the 2015 Golden Buoy Competition will be held this Friday and Saturday, May 22-23. And for all you Canadians (and other New Englanders like myself), this one will be epic: it’s a 3-on-3 street hockey tournament. Brings me back to my childhood taking slapshots from my siblings…the good ole days!
Hosted by Coconut Tree Divers, another of West End’s oldest dive shops, this tournament is sure to bring out some competitive streaks here on the streets. Games will be played in front of Sundowners (well known for playing every single hockey game on TV) starting Friday evening and continuing during the day on Saturday until only one team is left standing.
The winning team wins a sunset cruise for 12, which is a pretty amazing prize! Entry is $25/team of 4 and all proceeds benefit SOL Foundation.
