A SUMMERLIKE SKATE
There were days late last month when the temperature nearly reached 30 degrees Celsius in this area. People who work outside were complaining about the heat, and children could be seen swimming at some popular watering holes. But even as the summer stretched into fall, many dozens of young athletes were honing their hockey skills at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts. They were taking part in a pre-season skills camp hosted by BR8KAWAY Hockey. The ice was soft and the players were most - often drenched after leaving the ice, but the conditions could not suppress the energy and excitement as players prepared for another season. Here are some of the faces on the ice during a session for novice- and atomaged players on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
