Keen team play and having fun will always be a winter tradition in Ponoka and district wherever you can find an arena or clear a sheet of outdoor ice.
In this 1940s picture this young and rambunctious team were enjoying a pick-up hockey game on the outdoor community rink. Shown in the back row are: Harold Ramsey, Edward Larson, Norm Reid and Harold Snyder; up front is: Walter Cunnings, Frank Strause, Cleo (Pete) Peterson, and Vernon (Buck) Lux.
Notice the long wooden hockey sticks (without tape) and the really flimsy goal pads.
Try to get out this season to watch the kids play or even play a little shinny.
