 Outdoor Playground "A" action at the old River Park rink on Churchill Drive
River Park (in assorted dark jerseys) vs. either Earl Grey or Carter
Unlike the Riverview & Lord Roberts kids, River Park couldn't even afford boards.
The shack (heated by a wood stove) is just visible to the left.
Note No. 11 waiting for a pass behind the net.

Ken Dennis takes on five defenders while his Right-Winger stops to take a photo
Gerry Halliday, who wants his name in a caption, says the opposing team is Lord Roberts and claims to be the good-looking defenceman with the scarf, while the goalie is Gord Horne.
The Halliday Conspiracy is broken wide open by Halliday's own admission that "I don't know why the players seem to be wearing the same jerseys.  Pick up hockey was all I ever played at River Park."
Gord Horne closes the case by denying to be the opposing goalie: "It couldn’t be me as he is looking at the play and I would have been fishing the puck out of the net."  
Gerry Halliday adds: "I do recall him (Gord) playing for L.R.C.C. and trying to avoid being killed by Dave Pearce's slap shots.  I wasn't quite so fortunate; there is a still a small divot in my chin where one of Dave's shots hit me in the face."
Dave Pearce gets the last word: "If he only had a divot on his chin, I guess I must have let up on my shot."
