Key West Hockey

Many people don't know this, but Key West hosts a hockey league. How, you say? There's no closed rink and certainly no winter ice. So where do teams play? Here.

And speaking of hockey, we'd like to let you know with more than a little bit of pride, that our grandson Cameron, 15, skated his way onto the varsity hockey team at Berwick Academy in Berwick. Maine. Cam entered Berwick in September as a freshman, but he's been playing hockey competitively since he was six years old and has competed to the national level during his career in youth hockey. Needless to say, we and his parents and sister are proud of his accomplishments.

Since I'm already off on this tangent, may I also mention Cam's sister, Amanda. She's a senior at St. Thomas Aquinas, a Catholic high school in the New Hampshire seacoast area. Amanda is an honor student, member of the National Honor Society, and a fine volleyball player. She made the junior varsity as a freshman, and went on to play three years of varsity volleyball, despite being only 5'1". She was selected this year to the NH State All-Star team for intermediate size schools. She's off to college next year, maybe Northeastern University.

And I'll take no guff about the lack of a Key West connection in this post. It's right there in the first paragraph.
