One Country.
One Community.
One Day.

March 31, 2010
No roar of the crowd. No more ice carnivals. No more students walking from the schools to the arena. No more public skating. No more floods. No more booth turning out hamburgers, fries and chocolate bars. No more recreation hockey nor minor hockey nor senior hockey here. This was the scene Wednesday night, March 24 at 10:03 p.m. after the last skaters got off the ice—and then all the lights were put off to end not just the season—but the final use of the ice rink. Other picture (shown in print edition of The Provost News) was taken by Buck Gregory with The News camera way back on November 29, at 1:50 p.m., 1962 (see PN Dec. 5, 1962) shows the first giant arch rib put into place at the site of the then new arena in the playground. The time between the two pictures totals 414,776.21 hours—and that number is also how many 60 minute hockey games could have been played continually day and night over that span with no intermissions or whistles. Arena users will head to a new building this fall. More photos in this week's paper. ©Provost News Photos.

Provost Peewee Blades Earn Silver at Provincial Hockey Finals
The Provost Peewee Blades fell just short of gold in the final game of the provincial “C” hockey tournament to the host Spirit River Rangers, 5-4, on Sunday, March 28.

They won silver, or second place in Alberta in their category.

Provost looked to be unstoppable as they dominated their pool in round robin play. Game 1 saw the Blades beat the Sexsmith Vipers 12-2, then the Claresholm Thunder 11-0 in Game 2, followed by beating the Jasper Bears 12-2 to close out round-robin play.
