Feb. 26'th 2011 ROADTRIP to Detroit!!!

The Detroit Lithuanian Hockey tournament was a great success! We met the Chicago "Baltics" team at the halfway point in good ‘ol Detroit! It looks like it's going to be an annual event.

Many thanks to Kunigas Gediminas Jonikas for singing the Lithuanian national anthem and saying some kind words. Thanks also to Chicago and Detroit's team captains and organizers for their generosity and helping make this event possible.

Great times in Detroit! All teams played well and as a spectator, I can say that I truly enjoyed my time there. But it wouldn't have been so successful without fantastic organizers, friendliness among fellow Lithuanians and fantastic fans :)
Next year all the way! Any help needed with organization, feel free to reach out!!!
