 The old Perth Arena was condemned, hockey had to be played, so even with a shortened season, many games were played here. The juniors had to play their home games in Smith’s Falls. The cold Saturday mornings, the change huts with the pot belly stoves burning holes in the soles of your socks, hot chocolate and “Sparky” McAdam flooding the rink. The coaches were even on the rink. Peter Sinclair can be seen to the left.
