Parksville Panters hockey

The 13th annual Panters Classic old-timers hockey tournament is fast approaching.

The Parksville Panters are gearing up for their annual Classic old-timers hockey tournament.

The 13th annual Parksville Panters Classic old-timers hockey tournament is fast approaching, and  local players have been putting in some extra ice time in preparation.

“Oh yeah. It’s a lot of fun — it’s a lot of games,” said tournament co-chair John Ogle, a right winger and D-man with the Panters 70s team.

“We have 18 teams including four local teams this year and they’re coming from Victoria, Comox, the Lower Mainland, Olds, Ft. McMurray, Edmonton and Calgary in Alberta, Flin Flon Manitoba, Colorado and Massachusetts. If people want to show up and see some games there’s no admission and it’ll be some good hockey.”

Slated for Oceanside Place Sept. 10-12 with games running all day every day, the tournament features four age divisions — the 60s, 65s, 70s and 75s.


In keeping with tradition the local Shriners Club will be putting on a pancake breakfast on the Wednesday morning from 8 – 11 a.m. behind Oceanside Place. Cost is $7 per person, and you can mingle with the players, some of whom have extensive professional or amateur experience.
