The Nelson Blueliners women’s recreational hockey teams are hosting their 20th annual Icebreaker tournament this weekend.

Two Nelson teams, the Thorman Drillers and Blueliners will be up against teams from Kaslo, Vernon, and Kamloops.

The tournament begins this evening at 8 p.m. at the Nelson and District Community Complex with the Drillers taking on the Kaslo Herricanes. The tournament semi-finals and finals are scheduled for Sunday.

The host team was started initially by a group of nurses and paramedics and other local women looking for somewhere to play hockey in 2003. They began scrimmaging on the small ice and a couple of years later, the Blueliners were born.
