1. How would you describe your community's passion and spirit for hockey?

Our small town is passionate about hockey which can be seen in the children's faces as they play their hearts out on the ice or on their own driveway.  All are proud to wear the Twister emblem no matter if it's a win or a loss.  Hockey isn't just a sport in our town, it's a way of life and an opportunity for team and community building.  Collecting toys for the OPP toy drive, volunteering, celebrating big and small accomplishments, cream pie throwing at coaches, pot lucks and more (including being a part of the Air Canada and P.K.Subban's Canada Carols). What we have in small numbers we make up with our big hearts!

2. What arena project would most benefit from the prize money and what impact would this project have on your community?

The ice; piping system that helps create the ice and keep it cool (cooling system); the boards; changing rooms; a system that would enable our players to get on the ice prior to the end of September (Fall Fair uses the ice surface so ice can't be put in till after).  This would boost our community and give our players extra ice time that could help develop them prior to games starting.  It would also be a more welcoming place for visiting teams.


3. Why should your community be the next Kraft Hockeyville?

As a small town we struggle to get ourselves on the map! Our numbers are dwindling and we need something that will encourage people to play here.  Being surrounded by larger towns we fear that we will eventually have to fold and our community centre will be used by outside teams rather than hometown ones.  The arena would not be the centre of our town and our community would no longer have an opportunity to be a family!
