Cold weather is expected, but all the teams are ready to bring on the heat and melt the ice. All spectators are welcome to enjoy great food at the Westwood grill, bid on some items at our silent auction, test your hockey shooting skills at Anthony Ford Pond Hockey's "The Next Great One Challenge" and be witness to the greatest pond hockey in southern Minnesota. Funds raised at the tournament will go to hockey scholarships for under-privileged youth in the Mankato area and Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia(TACL) research to find the cure for the type of cancer Anthony fought so hard to win.
