On Thursday, October 29 at the Midget A1 game in Aldergrove, hockey fans were treated to Sweet Sportsmanship! It was Candy Toss Night in the old barn. Much like the well-known Teddy Bear toss, the first goal the home team scored kicked off the party. Aldergrove Bruins scored midway through the first and the candy started flying in the stands. Mini chocolate bars, peanut butter cups, fuzzy peaches and bags of chips were freely tossed to cheering fans. When North Delta Midget A1 responded with a goal, the Sundevil fans were not only excited for the goal, but for their share of treats too. Grandparents, parents, siblings and friends all muchin’ on treats. Until the candy ran out, all goals were recognized. Players and
coaches were not left out as they received treats after the game too. What fun!
Smiles were everywhere in the building and it was a friendly, happy atmosphere. A true classy act, every last piece of garbage was picked up in the stands leaving no extra work for the hard working arena staff.
