Thank you!

Thank you for making Knuckle Basher '13 so amazing! This year was a great success and it's due to amazing sponsors and enthusiastic participants! A special thanks goes out to MEC envoy, Chris Geisler, who flew in from Vancouver to present a brilliant slideshow on Saturday evening. Jason Billings also went out of his way to host the Tech Talk series.

Thank you to MEC for organizing and funding the festival logistics, Yamnuska for running solid on-ice clinics,  ACC for lodging the majority of participants, and CASA for hosting the Knuckle Basher Mixer.

Keep an eye out for the MEC Canmore Ice Festival in the 2014 season.
