Red Bull Crashed Ice a Success

Despite the frigid temperatures, LaFlamme says viewing areas at Major's Hill Park, York Street and on Wellington Street were at capacity throughout the night. Red Bull would not discuss numbers, but Ottawa Police say that at any given time about 15,000 people packed into the area around the Ottawa Locks to watch the sporting event.
On Monday, Ottawa 2017 clarified that further to say nearly 50,000 people attended the finals on Saturday evening. All viewing areas hit capacity Saturday, including the locks with a capacity of roughly 20,000 people, the Wellington overflow area at 12,100, Major's Hill Park at 10,000 and the York Street Activation Site at 5,600.
"RCMP geospatial measuring pegs the crowd at 28,000 in one snapshot from Saturday evening (8pm) for the bowl and Wellington area. That does not‎ account for the very large flow-through crowd due to the cold, which would put overall attendance much higher, as attendance turned over approximately 2 times, a significant increase over the 28,000 number that was shared," wrote Denise LeBlanc with Ottawa 2017 in a media release issued Monday.

Hockey Trip to Russia (Moscow - St. Petersburg) 2017

Greetings PHL Players, I am pleased to inform you that Steve B. (Captain of Team Black) is looking for 15 adventurous PHL players to join him for his 2nd annual Hockey Trip to Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg) next May (9-17).

The trip will include playing in the old timers' division of the 2nd annual International Hockey Friendship Cup in Moscow from May 10 to 14, and three days in beautiful St. Petersburg. Besides great hockey in an international setting, there will be plenty of opportunities for sight seeing and partying with other players and Russian hosts in both cities.

Please note a more complete flyer will be arriving via email as it has personal coordinates. Given the advance time needed to book flights and hotels, I encourage you to contact Steve B. directly or Mark T. by December 15 to receive additional information and reserve a spot.

Addition notes: Spouses and children are welcome.

Thank you for your attention.
