What are the odds?? While in Ottawa for a spring tournament through Western Ringette (Jun 2-4), our Calgary AA girls ran right into Mayor Nenshi while out for an evening snack! Agreeing that it must be a small world, he graciously posed for a photo, and even mentioned his encounter with them at his latest re-election campaign fundraiser in Calgary.
Of course, he wished them luck in their tourney, and it worked. Calgary Rock (made up of Calgary U14AA athletes from Team White, Red and Blue) won Gold in the Capital Ringette Classic tourney—all athletes and parents had a blast playing, cheering and sightseeing in beautiful downtown Ottawa.
