Good story Randy. As I stated in earlier post Blind River is a great little hockey town with many warm and frendly people who have a way of making visitor's feel welcome. Whether it's the "Riverside Tavern" or the local Timmys Blind River always has the "Welcome" sign on.
Best of Luck to the Beavers and heres to the Blind River-Elliott Lake-Soo "winter wars on ice"!!!
I second what you say and let me add that Blind River Memorial Community is one of my favourite places to watch a junior hockey game, ranking right up there with Pullar Stadium, home of the Soo Eagles of the North American Hockey League.
To be sure, Blind River is a good little hockey town with some of the most-passionate fans in this neck of the woods. Blind River also happens to be home to the Riverside Tavern, which just may be the friendliest bar from Sault Ste. Marie to Sudbury. My old radio buddy Frank Kennedy and his brother Ken Kennedy are two of the nicest "bar keeps" in the business.
As for the Beavers and their new coach, Doug McEwen, I would also like to wish them good luck for the upcoming season. Blind River may be a small town but it's a big part of the NOJHL.
