The meeting for Outside Construction members ("A" Local 1928 Members) will be held in Summerside, PEI, at the Quality Inn on Water St. at 7pm tomorrow, Thursday April 16.

The IBEW Local 1928 hockey tournament, which was held this weekend in Tantallon, NS, had an exciting finish with two evenly-matched teams—Point Tupper/Biomass and the Sackville Bucket Monkeys—battling it out in the final on Sunday afternoon. The Bucket Monkeys managed to put one in the net after a scramble in front of the Tupper goalie in the dying minutes of the game, leaving the score tied 1-1 at the close of regular time. After a five-minute overtime playing four-on-four, the score was still tied and it took a shootout to decide which was the better team that day. On Sunday afternoon, it was Point Tupper/Biomass. Thank you to Local President Jim Sponagle who was the tournament organizer. Thank you's go also to Nova Scotia Power, which supplied prizes to the second-place team, and to Tony Stevens, plant manager at Tufts Cove, who sponsored a celebratory steak meal for all the team participants. See you next year when the tournament will be held in Prince Edward Island!
