day 3130: scenes from the altoona hockey tournament! I.
odin's team played 3 games in altoona, wisconsin this weekend. they had a great time bonding by the pool at the hotel and playing against some great area teams on the ice.
odin's team is still quite young with many 7 and young 8 year olds on their "squirt b" so they will often struggle against more seasoned squirt teams with 9 and 10 year olds, though they always have a great time playing even when they lose. every game you can see them get better and better and i have no doubt that after a season of learning how to play together as a team they'll be quite competitive.
this time they lost two close games and tied the third.
somehow i forgot my camera in the hotel for the first two games so i was only able to shoot the third. bad! bad! bad!
here the team is getting ready for the game with a little cheer by the net. odin is number 64 with the red mouth guard.
