The Road to the Canadian Championships
The Calgary Deb Rep Team won provincials, and then reality set in and they came to the conclusion that they had no money to go to Montreal to Nationals..... Most of the players were students and everyone worked hard to generate some funds to help with expenses.
There was no financial support available from Ringette Calgary or Ringette Alberta at that time.
