A question for all of our avid readers out there in blog land! What do “#24 scored a hockey goal with 5 minutes left on the clock” and “I pronounce you man and wife” have in common? Absolutely nothing right? I am sorry but you would be completely incorrect!!!!
RICH YOUR SPORTSCASTER (no, has not gone off his rocker, at least I dont think so) here to tell everyone that exactly these two events happened simutaneously to one great family! On the weekend of April 2nd through the 4th, 2010, the CANAM HOCKEY ASSOCIATION was holding their weekly children’s hockey tournament. Staying at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort was the MINNESOTA PRIDE hockey teams. As their usual form several divisions of the the organization had made it to the Gold Medal round on Sunday morning April 4th. The children were busy skating around the ice in the 1980 HERB BROOKS ARENA trying to score those all important goals to win the Gold Medal. One Minnesota Pride team did just that and won gold. CONGRATULATIONS! GUYS YOU DESERVED IT!!!
Everyone from the team was celebrating their much deserved victory and one family in particular had just a little bit more ice time to endure. Here comes the great part of this story!
The game had finished and one couple with their family decided they were going to make it official and get married there in the afternoon!!! That is exactly what they did! STEVE AND AMY walked out on the ice with their children and decided it was time to tie the knot. Our very own, PRINCESS AMANDA RECLA-WYLIE performed the marriage right on the ice of the 1980 arena!!! (Yes, no joke right on the ice) Each individual said their vows and made it official.
CONGRATULATIONS STEVE & AMY FOR SHARING THIS GREAT MOMENT WITH THE GOLDEN ARROW!!! FROM FAMILY AND STAFF OF THE RESORT WE HOPE FOR MANY BLISSFUL YEARS OF MARRIAGE!
So, as you can see, this was a very exciting day on April 4th, 2010. Not only for the Minnesota Pride Hockey Team but also for Steve and Amy whom got married. Wondering how you are going to propose to that special someone or looking to hold a small intimate wedding ceremony at the Golden Arrow or any other location in the Lake Placid area? Then please check out AMANDA’S PRINCESS PERKS as she will make your special day unforgettable!!!
Time for this boy to head off the ice. Everyone have a great and wonderful day! I look forward to seeing each of you in the future for whatever special occassion brings you to Lake Placid.
