It's the Leinenkugel's Classic Pond Hockey Tournament. This is the 6th year of the classic.

Players from 9 different states and 2 countries are completing.

Organizers say it's like a family reunion.

"It's a lot of fun for these guys that come back. It's a tight knit group of people because of it's a small fraternity of us that have skated and played hockey," said project event coordinator, Scott Leigel.

Admission is free and starts back up Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
