That’s right, a record 346 teams from 27 states and Canada will participate on 28 ice rinks located on Dollar Lake, just east of Eagle River Feb. 8-10, 2013.The 2013 event will expand from the 2012 tournament, which had a then-record 284 teams playing on 24 ice rinks. This year’s tournament will consist of 18 no-check divisions, including several women’s divisions.
