Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire. "
I know the week is just getting started but for the Owen Sound Minor Hockey Group, and for numerous Minor Hockey Associations, they're looking ahead to this coming weekend.
Owen Sound Minor Hockey Group will host the Regional Silver Stick Tournament that will feature competition in 4 age brackets; Minor Atom, Minor Peewee, Minor Bantam and Minor Midget.
Overall, there will be 28 Minor Hockey teams in the city for the weekend looking to advance to the International Silver Stick Championship Tournament which comes up early in 2020 at Newmarket.
From Friday morning onward the Harry Lumley-Bayshore Community Centre and both ice pads at the Julie McArthur Regional Rec Centre will have tournament games.
It all leads to Championship Sunday at the Bayshore.
The Minor Atom Final is at noon.
The Minor Peewee Final follows at 1:30 pm
The Minor Bantam Championship is at 3 pm Sunday afternoon.
And the finale is the Minor Midget Championship Game at 4:30 pm.
Among the 28 teams this weekend, four Owen Sound Junior Attack entries will be competing.
To follow the various schedules for the local teams you can go to owensoundminorhockey.com and click on " Tournaments " or go directly to www.silverstick.org.
There's still a lot of the week and a lot of sports ahead this week, but for the Owen Sound Minor Hockey Group and the 4 Junior Attack entries in the Silver Stick, the weekend is coming up very quickly
