Following the Opening Ceremonies for Winterfest 2005, the Tumbler Ridge Smokee Blue Stars gathered at the arena to get their first glimpse at the trophy they would be playing for on the weekend tournament. Banners and pucks were presented, as the novice division team formed and posed for pictures from proud family members.
There was 150 plus kids involved in the Tumbler Ridge Novice MHA Division tournament and all those who were registered with the Spirit of 2010 tournament received a commemorative puck. The tournament itself receives a 2010 banner and trophy to award.
This season there will be 150 Spirit of 2010 tournaments taking place around the province, with more than 30,000 players competing. These tournaments are presented by the Province of British Columbia, 2010 LegaciesNow, the Vancouver Canucks and the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association.
