Hockey players from across the world will descend on Plaster Rock, N.B. this weekend to lace up for the World Pond Hockey Championships.
The village, which has a population of 1,135, expects to see 120 teams and 8,000 spectators swing through for the tournament. Skaters will compete on 20 different rinks on Roulston Lake.
Plaster Rock first held the tournament more than 15 years ago as a fundraiser to build an arena and it has since grown to attract teams from all over the world.
