The tournament season has kicked off (or is that faced off?) at the Winthrop Rink, which will host a series of 12 youth and adult competitions drawing teams from around the region over the course of the 2023-24 season. The Great Puckaroo Roundup No. 1, where these photos were shot, took over the ice last weekend. Here’s the upcoming schedule: Dec. 1-3, Great Puckaroo Roundup No. 2 (B level); Dec. 8-10, The Joyful Jamboree No. 1; Dec. 15-17, The Great Outdoor Classic (18U level). The rink operates under a modified schedule during tournament weekends. Visit www.winthroprink.org for details.
