Winter Starts With A Bang

Hello all Pond friends
It's that time of year where we start to reflect on the great times we have together with family and friends. We wish you all a very blessed and happy holiday season and look forward to seeing you at the 3rd annual Pond Hockey Championships on Lake Minnetonka.

This time we have put two dates on the lake - one for Women, Girls, and Youth mite age participants (Jan. 22/23rd - Sat/Sun) and the other for Adult Male (co ed is acceptable) on January 28-31, 2011.

With the recent blizzard and a good start on the Ice (about 6" thick before the storm) we will probably be out there next week stating preparations for the 2011 event. Polaris has provided an ATV for some lucky winner in the Skill competition (this is for all attendees) and we have plans for some rocking good music to tap our Hottie Infused feet to. There will be plenty of fun at the event with Goldie Gopher showing up (might have a showdown with the Mn Wild mascot Nordy) in a One on One battle on the lake. Maynard's & Jake O'Connors are sponsors of the PHNAC and will be providing discounts for participants. As you know from last year, those establishments are steps from the action on ice. So, with that - We hope to see you with your skates for another great outdoor pond hockey blast. See you soon.

Denny, Jay and the folks at the NAC

Pond Hockey does Movember

Hi all,

It's finally hockey season and that means... Moustache November. This Movember two PHNAC volunteers will donate their faces to raising awareness about cancers that affect men. Our commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which we know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.

We're doing this because:

· 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime

· 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime

This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. To help, you can either:

- Click here to check out pics and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account
- Write a check payable to Movember, referencing my name or Registration Number 914290 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726

The money raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others, through the world’s most promising prostate cancer research and LIVESTRONG’s programs that support young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer.

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please visit

Thank you.
