Pond hockey tournament begins in Eagle River
EAGLE RIVER - Hockey teams from all over the country descended upon Eagle River today.

This morning kicked off the annual Labatt Blue/USA Hockey, Pond Hockey Championships on Dollar Lake.

This is the 11th year Eagle River hosted the event.

"I think today is going great. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Weather wise it's sunny but it's still cold. The ice is holding up. Games are rolling. It looks like they are having a great time," says Tournament Director Katie Holmgren.

Nearly 2000 players will take to the ice on the lake this weekend.

There is no parking allowed on the lake this year and area streets have been turned one way to support the extra parking needed.

Last year's ice conditions forced the championships to relocate to the Eagle River Derby Track. Not so much this year.

"We are really really excited to be back on the lake. It was great that we could host the event. We didn't have to cancel last year, but, it is really nice to be back on the pond, says Holmgren.

Preparations for this year's event started just about this time last year.

The Championships run through Sunday.
