  • 1. AN INVITATION … Powered by
  • 2. Hey Buttercup, it’s that time again … … time to put on Your Danglin’ Gloves!
  • 3. SO, GEAR UP BUTTERCUP! AND REGISTER ... ... FOR THE 2nd ANTW ERP POND HOCKEY TOURNAMENT!
  • 4. The Story • The game of ice hockey once was pure... on the frozen ponds. Far away from NHL millionaires locking out players. Without overpriced beer at concession stands and without the steady drone of techno music. • We are taking hockey back! Back to the pond were it all began. True, we're limited. We don't have the same sub-zero temperatures as our Canadian stickbro's. So, we decided to bring the game indoors but the food outdoors. • That's why on Saturday April 26th & Sunday April 27th, 2014 we invite you and your best mates to participate in the 2nd Indoor Pond Hockey Classic at the Ruggeveld Ice Rink in Antwerp (Deurne), Belgium. • Register your team to enjoy a weekend of hockey fun and great buddy times to end the season! See you there! – Chilly Pete
  • 5. The Pond • Once again, we are going to turn the Ruggeveld ice rink into an ‘indoor’ hockey pond! • Games will be played on two boarded hockey surfaces (end boards to blue line – playing cross-ice) and a genuine neutral terrace deck in the neutral zone with tables for the fans! • No ice fishing though... so don't drill any holes into the ice! Address: IJsbaan Ruggeveld, Ruggeveldlaan 488, 2100 Deurne, Belgium
  • 6. The Tournament • Teams (6 players +1 goalie) will be divided into several pools, playing round robin games of 15 minutes running time. • Top seeded teams will play for the tournament title in a final round, all other teams will play for a final ranking. • A maximum of 30 teams can register... (with a minimum of 15). • So, be quick to enter your team!
  • 7. The Award • Pond Hockey is pure hockey. No Cups, No Medals. The glory of victory is enough ... • But hey, don’t worry. If you win, we’ll give you a prize ... Rock on Buttercup!
  • 8. The Rules • Some rules were meant to be broken... but NOT these. Respect 'em and play the game how it should be played. You'll be rewarded knowing you're a good sport. 1. Teams consist of maximum 6 players & 1 goalie and minimum 4 players & 1 goalie 2. Each game goes 15 minutes without stoppage – that will be enough ... 3. 4-on-4 format: 3 players & 1 goalie on the pond – only your best hockey buddies ... 4. Substitution of players: made on the fly anytime – you will get tired ... 5. Teams wear the same color jerseys – 'cause you don't want to pass to the wrong guy ... 6. No slapshots – No body checks – hey, we have to work on Monday! 7. No fights! – You fight, you're gone, out, finished! We just wanna have fun! 8. All participants have proper insurance (RBIHF or private) & wear full equipment – Safety first! 9. After a goal (or infraction) mid-ice face-off & a penalty = penalty shot – That's only fair … 10. There is no icing and no offside. Goals can be scored from anywhere on the ice – All right!
  • 9. The Food • BBQ Meat! The genuine pond hockey grub! • Of course you will be hungry after an intense hockey scrimmage on the pond. So we arranged sandwiches for every lunch and BBQ meat with a salad bar buffet on Saturday night … And when you get the munchies, there will be some hot soup and chicken wings … You'll love it! • For the hungriest hockey heroes, there is lots of extra chicken wings for a little cash. Yummies!
  • 10. The Souvenir • And after the games you can get out of your wet clothes, shower and dress up with the official pond logo T-shirt* to drink that last cold beer in the Phantoms' Clubhouse… • At least you'll have something to prove you survived the 2nd pond hockey tournament in Antwerp, Belgium of all places ... Or start collectig those prized logo Tshirts … • At the 1st edition, many people asked us if the famous hoodie was for sale… Good News! Now it is! For an extra 45€ it’s yours to keep (pre-order & pre-pay)! Legendary! *Free T-shirt for all entries before March 15th – Possibility to purchase after that date
  • 11. The Fee • A whole weekend of playing hockey with your mates, plenty of free food and a vintage pond hockey T-shirt* for only 65€/person**. • That's a treat! *If you register before March 15th, 2014 **Teams consisting of maximum 1 goalie and 6 players pay 455€/team **Teams consisting of maximum 1 goalie and 5 players pay 390€/team **Teams consisting of minimum 1 goalie and 4 players pay 325€/team.
