It is an optimistic sign. Not a definitive one, perhaps.
But there is definitely a Bird sighting on the horizon, as in a planned, first flap of the wings.
To be sure, we see Birds on ice in the foreseeable future.
As in a tryout camp for the Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League.
At any rate, here we go with the details.
Thunderbirds general manager Trev Zachary has confirmed dates for an upcoming tryout camp for the Soo’s NOJHL team.
Zachary and the Thunderbirds have ice booked for August 14, 15 and 16 — Friday, Saturday and Sunday — at John Rhodes Community Centre that will include morning and evening sessions of skills, drills and controlled scrimmages.
The ice time, tryout sessions are open to players born in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005. Cost to register is $150 per player.
For further information, contact Zachary via firstname.lastname@example.org
And the registration form is available at www.soothunderbirds.com under CAMPS.
