The Regina Bandits won the Belle “AA”
provincial title in Saskatoon on March 5th and 6th.
Regina won both of their games against Saskatoon to win the best of
three series. Both games were hard fought with scores of 5-3 and 3-2.

The Panthers Tween
B team attended the Saskatoon City of Bridges Tournament on February
18-20. We had another wonderful weekend together as a team. The girls
had the opportunity to swim, shop, eat at the Tomas Cook Restaurant,
play games and go to the movies. All the girls survived the “Boogieman”
movie but just barely. Our hospitality room was very active each night
filled with team parents and coaches.
We are very pleased with
how our team has progressed this year. Our tournament record is now 17-4
winning bronze in our first two tournaments and gold in our last two
tournaments. Sometimes if coaches are very lucky they will have what we
call a magical year with a team. A magical team is one where the players
give 100% effort, where all the players continue to improve their
skills, where the players all get along, where the team parents are
totally supportive and the players are fun to be with. This year’s
Panther team has all these qualities and more. This is a magical team
and we wish to thank the players and teams parents for allowing us to
share this magical year with them.

We had an unusual game schedule at this tournament. playing on Friday
evening at 9:00 PM, Saturday morning at 8:15 AM and on Saturday night at

Blades players shopped, visited friends and relatives, socialized with
each other and had a team supper at the Tony Roma’s Restaurant. Only a
few parents came to the tournament but they still made the hospitality
room lively. The team played very well in all the games and won the
The Blades team has been together for
several years and we have coached some of the players for over ten
years. Our team stays together because of the respect and friendship the
coaches and players have for each other. It truly is a pleasure to be
part of this team. The Blade’s team wishes to thank the players and team
parents of the Panthers Tween B Team for coming out to our last two
games of the tournament. We appreciated the cheering and support you
gave us from the stands, it was a wonderful weekend made more so by your
support. We wish to thank the Blades players for another fun year.

The girls went swimming,
shopping, entered some motel hallway races, gained a lot of ringette
experience from playing six games and enjoyed several team meals.
The highlight of the trip was meeting the

of the team members came to visit the Panther girls and provided them
with autographs and several team pictures.
We had a wonderful weekend in Calgary and

year my most enjoyable year ever in Ringette.
Thanks for the memories, Larry Way
