Fishing

The Essex County Sportsmen’s Association’s annual Ice Fishing Tournament will be held Feb. 3, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Artichoke Reservoir, weather permitting. The event offers $1,000 in cash prizes. The entry fee is $20 and sign-up will occur at the tournament in the Turkey Hill parking area in Newburyport. All entrants will be eligible for a raffle at the end of the tournament.

Hockey

The Friends of Newburyport Hockey will be co-hosting a fundraiser with Triton in efforts to raise funds for the construction of a new locker room at the Graf Rink. The event will be held Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Elks Lodge immediately following the Triton/Newburyport hockey game (puck drops at 4 p.m.). Tickets for the event are $50 and will include a buffet dinner, silent auction as well as live entertainment provided by “The Old Brigade”, who opened for the Dropkick Murphys last year for St. Patrick’s Day. Tickets will be available at the door; however, due to the level of interest, we suggest purchasing them prior to the event. For ticket information and silent auction donations, please contact friendsofnewburyporthockey@gmail.com.
