Dear Friends of the Winter Classic,
The third annual Brockville Winter Classic Weekend event is being organized by the Brockville Winter Classic Committee in collaboration with the Rotary Park Revitalization Committee. We are happy to announce that we will be delivering upon the success of last years’ events with a bigger and better “Brockville Winter Classic Weekend 2017”, and we are excited to share our plans with you.
From Friday, March 3rd to Sunday, March 5th, in addition to the highly anticipated “Brockville Winter Classic” hockey tournament, draft lottery, and silent auction, we take great pleasure in announcing the following additions to our weekend:
Brockville Rotary Park is a locally funded facility that offers free recreation for the entire community.
This facility is integral to the healthy upbringing of our youth by offering play without charge. Over the course of six years’ Rotary Park has received upgrades in excess of $1,500,000. The Rotary Park Revitalization Committee is in it’s last phase of plans which include the installation of a roof over the Rotary pad to ensure usage regardless of weather conditions, 365 days a year. Your support can help us meet this goal.
If you wish to be involved in this weekend, or have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook.com/BrockvilleWinterClassic or visit this website (http://brockvillewinterclassic.com/) for ongoing updates!

The recent rain & warm temperatures show the value of why we need to #raiserotaryroof over Rotary Park Pad!
All of the rain and warm temperatures will greatly affect ice quality to the point that the rink may need to be closed. Not to mention that people will not want to use the facility if it is pouring rain. So together let's solve this problem!
