Had a great 3 day week-end in Cleveland with my oldest son(11)for R&R Cup hockey tournament for Squirts to Bantam. I'm feeling like a pretty proud dad as this is the first-time my son played outside of the Jamestown,NY arena. My son plays PEE-WEE MOHL and its only his first year of organized hockey. His team made it the finals against an Ohio Arrows team, the game was tied 3-3 after regulation and per USA hockey the teams played a 5 minute over-time. Still no score. Then a shoot-out with 10 players for each team getting a chance. The Shoot-out starts with one player from each team going opposite ways at the same time. Frickin nerve racking, I was jumping around like a little kid. My son was no.6 and we were up one. I got my hand over my eyes peeking thru and my son calmly skates down, puck on his forehand then backhand, goalie stays up and he neatly deposits it for a goal. The Arrows score one more and miss on the last shot and we win the PEE WEE B3 title. Man it was awesome,I was a proud dad.. Oh the Holiday INN (Cleveland West) sucks. Sorry if I rambled, I needed to get it out.

Thanks. PEE WEE has an A and B, B is the house team and A is the travel team. House team is usually the younger and less skilled players up from Squirts and the travel team is older players ready for Bantam. The travel team does play Buffalo teams like the Buffalo Bisons and the Southtown Stars.

Thanks. Well quite a few! lots of traveling, though the Hotel was in Independence so it was kind of in the middle. Winterhurst-Serpentine, Barons Lakefront, Gilmour Academy(Weird place) and the Mentor Civic Arena(right next to Mentor high school.Boy you Ohioans really take football seriously!) which was the furthest drive. The championship on Sunday was at Gilmour Academy rink.

What's crazy is Mentor's stadium isn't even the biggest or best in the area. Byers Field in Parma and and Bearcat Stadium in Bedford are twice what JTO Stadium is.

I used to skate at Winterhurst and Mentor (back when it was just one rink) when I was in middle and high school. The area is getting some pretty nice facilities. The rink in Brooklyn used to be the area's best, hosting the Baron Cup every year and the high school state finals every two years (until they moved it to Columbus), and now it's maybe fourth or fifth. I know there was talk for a while about putting an NAHL team in Gilmour after the Barons folded up and the Phantoms moved to the USHL, but it never panned out.
