Today is the 2009 Swansea Hockey Association Banquet. The Learn to Play Hockey Timbits took over the Swansea Legion from 11am to 12:15pm, enjoying hot dogs, drinks and trophies.

The trophy case is filling up with participation trophies. Yours truly only earned one non-participation trophy throughout his esteemed SHA hockey career, and that was a Most Improved Player trophy from 1987 or so. That MIP trophy shone brighter than all the participation trophies combined.
Here's my son with his two (yes, two!) participation trophies proudly collected earlier today.
