Did you know that hockey has been played on the frozen lakes and rivers around town since the 1930s. Back in the “OLD” days, teams from <a href="http://www.fortmcmurraytourism.com/things-to-do/events/2019/02/22/winterplay-2019" target="_blank">Fort McMurray</a> and the village of Waterways would hold an annual tournament to win the Fairbairn Cup. Now, with Waterway a part of the community, it’s “GAME ON” for all teams who want to enter the annual Shootout on the Snye Four-on-Four Pond Hockey Tournament on the Clearwater River. <a href="https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/2019-winterplay-shootout-on-the-snye-tickets-52686775564" target="_blank">Sign up</a> your team in age divisions starting at age 5.</span></p> <p><span><strong>Look up!
