Sixteen teams will take to the Souris River on Saturday to play a tournament of Shinny, raising money for the outdoor classroom at Souris School.

Event committee member, Bruce Swaenepoel, says this is the second year the 'Souris Rink the River' event is on the ice to raise funds for the school.

"The Souris School has been building an outdoor classroom space and the proceeds from this will go to them to help them finish up with that," he explains.

The Saturday event starts at 9 am with a host of volunteers serving hot drinks, hosting raffle tables and 50/50 tickets, playing music and offering a bar-b-que lunch!

This is the second year for the Souris Rink event.  "If we have a lot of interest, we're hoping to expand it, but the way it is now, it's a full day for us.  We're hoping it will turn out well!"
