Other awards recipients included: the Robert Crown Center, Percentage Trophy; RDV Sportsplex IceDen, Board of Directors Trophy; and Stars of Austin FSC, President's Award.
Special thanks and appreciation go to ISI District 8, our fantastic volunteer "army," Edge Ice Arena, and, of course, the competitors, their families and their coaches. Also, we are grateful to our presenting sponsor, Dream Duffel, for their generous support. Based on reports, the event was a huge hit for the 79 rink teams that brought nearly 1,000 participants from 18 states and three countries.
