Straits Shooters Pond Hockey Team

The Straits Shooters Team
From the beginning, the Straits Shooters team has been about having fun, reconnecting with old friends, and sharing a love of pond hockey.
Organized by Clyde and Betsy Dayrell-Hart of St. Ignace (formerly of Virginia), the Straits Shooters boasts a roster of players from across the state. In addition to Clyde and Betsy, the 2011 team included Brad Chambers and Glen Young of Petoskey, Doug Buck of Mackinac Island, and Jim Morris, a "ringer" from Grosse Pointe.
In past years participating players have been as far away as Indianapolis, Indiana.
To a player, the Straits Shooters will say the best part of the experience is playing a pure form of hockey in a spectacular setting, which has included blinding snow, bright sunshine, and unpredictable ice.
Until next year...keep your eye on the Puck!
