Attn:  Hockey NL Members

Our home stadium, the George Hawkins Arena, Twillingate, NL has been chosen as a Top 4 finalist, from all across Canada, for the title of Kraft Hockeyville 2020! This means that we are in the running for the grand prize of $250,000 in arena upgrades and to host an NHL pre-season game!

This is a tremendous accomplishment for our small town and historic rink. We are putting a lot of time and effort into this because we strongly feel that our aging arena is in desperate need of repair and upgrades and we believe that Twillingate is one of, if not the most, dedicated hockey town in the province.

In order for us to have a chance at winning the grand prize we need all of Newfoundland & Labrador behind us. The winner is simply chosen by the process of voting – the more votes we get, the better chance we have at being crowned Kraft Hockeyville 2020!

Voting begins on Friday, August 14 @ 10:30am and ends on Saturday, August 15 @ 7:30pm. 33 hours of unlimited voting!

Here’s how you vote:

  • Go to
  • Register your email address (if you haven’t already) and sign in.
  • Choose “George Hawkins Arena, Twillingate, NL”
  • VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE…and VOTE some more!

So, I am writing in hopes that you could help us spread the word to all Minor Hockey associations in the province. Provincial backing would be tremendous, and we all know how supportive Newfoundlanders and Labradorians can be!

*You can check out the “George Hawkins Arena, Twillingate, NL” Facebook page for more information.*

Thank you in advance for your support. As a fellow hockey community, we all know the value of teamwork.
