This group of athletes and coaches representing zone 3 (Langley, Aldergrove, Abbotsford, Hope, Pitt Meadows & Maple Ridge) at their second last ice time before the games at Aldergrove Arena on Monday Feb. 12. The excitement is building for this group of athletes and coaches as they were given their jerseys and walk out wear tonight so reality is starting to hit most of them now with the games only two weeks away. This is a wonderful opportunity for them all to create a lifetime of memories and coming together in an event that happens only every other year. It is kind of like a mini Olympics so it is a pretty awesome experience for all involved.
