Sister city hockey strengthens ties

Once again there was a fabulous old timers’ hockey game between the sister cities of Juneau and Whitehorse on Feb. 22, the beginning of the Rainforest Hockey Tournament.


The weather did not cooperate, but those Whitehorse players who beat the storm by coming early represented their city well.

The Carpenter’s Union 2247 donated the money for the ice time and Tom Ainsworth and Jan Hort officiated the game fairly and squarely. Darryl Tseu sang both the Canadian and American anthems while the international crowd watched and cheered. The final score was 5-2, so the trophy will stay in Juneau at the Treadwell Arena.

Thank you to KINY and KTOO for hosting us to advertise the game on Capital Chat and Juneau Afternoon. We also appreciate the Bullwinkle staff who allowed us to have the after-game gathering for socializing and game reviewing. This game has been an annual event for six years now and keeps our sister city relationship with Whitehorse vibrant and strong.

Susan Baxter,

Co-chair of Juneau Sister Cities Committee
