** On Saturday February 10 at 2 p.m. in Springer Market Square the 2nd Regiment Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, from CFB Petawawa will be defending their title in the 50th Annual Historic Hockey Series as part of Feb Fest 2018.


2 RCHA will be hosted at the RCHA Brigade Association, a founding organizer of the Historic Hockey game. It is a celebration of the first game played in Kingston in 1886. The series involves the traditional teams, Queen's University and Royal Military College who continue the oldest rivalry in hockey that dates back to 1886 when they first met on the Kingston harbour. The third team in the round-robin series is the 2nd Regiment from Royal Canadian Horse Artillery from CFB Petawawa, Ontario. The gunners represent the Kingston garrison soldiers stationed in Kingston who played 'shinny ' on the Kingston harbour as early as 1843. The game continued to be played on the harbour until 2006 when it was moved to the artificial ice rink in Springer Market Square. The original style sticks and uniforms as well as the original rules of that era are used including a square puck, seven players per side and with no forward passing. The teams compete in three 20-minute games for the RCHA Brigade Association Trophy. Following the  Historic Hockey series which commences at 2 p.m., the RCHA will host the teams for the presentations and refreshments at the RCHA, 193 Ontario Street.
