A set the record last year during the eleven day. And what we found was are solely people in this town love the game hockey play the game hockey who would have participated. If they were able to take the time off is a big thing you know yeah this huge commitment. And it was very difficult for many people to to make that commitment but once they were able to. To go to the event last year and see what it is I know there are many people who play the game on a regular basis and women included by the way. And as sled hockey players all these people are looking and thinking I'd love to be able to participate in this this format the community shift has given them that opportunity. And the response has been. Amazing get much better I mean people can take of four hours out of their day when you know you can't take eleven days awful worked I have to say you were gone eleven days last year and now everything went along just fine known really noticed.
