Welcome to the Border Wars box tournament! This box tourney will be held in Historic Irvington at the Ellenberger Ice rink that we now call “The Barn”. The Barn is an old ice rink that was used by the Indianapolis Checkers, who have since relocated to Colorado. While in Indy the Checkers were part of the New York Islanders during their Stanley Cup dynasty. It is old, dark, durty and full of history but we now call the Barn our beloved home and it is perfect for box!
