While all eyes are on the 51st annual AMSOIL World Championship Snowmobile Derby this weekend, there’s another major sporting event set for Eagle River in February.
The ninth annual Labatt Blue/USA Hockey Pond Hockey National Championship will be held on 28 ice rinks located on Dollar Lake just east of Eagle River Feb. 7-9.
Last year, a record 342 teams from 30 states and Canada participated in the event. This year’s tournament will consist of 19 no-check divisions, including several women's divisions.Conrad Heeg, executive director of the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center,
