Spencer members of the Boji Blizzard hockey team and Team Spencer Police Department present the Red Cross with a $250 check from proceeds generated from the "Guns and Hoses" Boot Hockey Tournament held at this year's Winter Games in January.

The Lakes Area Hockey Association (LAHA) paired up with Parks Marina to host the second-annual event on its pond. The event is played with Yaktrax attached to boots instead of skates. The Fire Departments and Police Department from Spencer, Estherville, Spirit Lake, and West Bend played a friendly yet spirited competition raising money to support the Red Cross and the LAHA.

The LAHA has constructed its new arena building and are now working on the refrigeration system for next season. Front Row (left to right): Larson Vulk, Kael Brandt, Keaton Graves, Sam Brandt, and Lewis Vulk. Back Row: Officer Mark Lawson, Officer Matt Smith, Officer Lindsey Franke, Officer Christian Thompson, Officer Bla ke Diekmann, and Red Cross representative, Bob Kirschbaum.
