Our very own, Arnprior Special Olympics Athletes participated in a Provincial Floor Hockey Tournament which was held in Sudbury, Ontario from June 9 to June 12, 2011.  The "Arnprior Axemen" had a very exciting road trip including 16 athletes and 3 coaches while sharing a bus with some athletes from Renfrew.  While in Sudbury the athletes and coaches stayed at the Cambrian College Residences.  Opening and closing ceremonies were held and about 300 were in attendance and able to watch a Stanley Cup game on a big screen at the Sudbury arena. 
 
How did they do?  The "Arnprior Axemen" were participating in the invitational side of the tournament, and were determined to be too strong for that division, therefore participated in the Mighty Duck division and won respectably the bronze medal.
 
Two of our Arnprior athletes (Terance Crabtree and Darryl Clark), were on loan to the Brockville Islanders and they won a gold medal.  The Brockville Islanders have been invited to participate in the Winter National Special Olympics Games next February in Saint Albert, Alberta.  We wish Terrance and Darryl all the best on their upcoming competition!
