Cup meeting slated

It’s time to get the ball—or, in this case, the puck—rolling.
The first meeting of the Dudley Hewitt Cup 2015 organizing committee will be held tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. at the Super 8 Motel here.

All those who interested in serving on the committee are asked to attend.
The tournament, which will run April 28-May 2, is returning to Fort Frances for the first time since 2003, when the former Borderland Thunder were the host team.
This time around, it will be the defending SIJHL champion Fort Frances Lakers playing host.
The four-team battle will feature the Lakers, who automatically are in the field as the host team.
They’ll be joined by the champions of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League, the Ontario Junior Hockey League, and the SIJHL.
Should the Lakers repeat as the SIJHL champions, or even just make the league final this coming season, their opponent in the final will be assured the other Dudley Hewitt Cup berth.
Anyone seeking more info can call Lakers’ president Milt Strachan (275-5255) or vice-president Bev Kotnik (274-2243).
