The Vancouver Ice-O-Topes is a women’s ice hockey team that plays in Division Two in the ASHL at Burnaby 8-Rinks in British Columbia, Canada. Last year the players decided to pull together a team fundraiser with partial proceeds going to the Britannia After School Hockey program which provides underprivileged teens in East Vancouver an opportunity to get into skates and learn the game. The calendar was a big success and sold out. The 2011 version is even better than its pin-up themed predecessor as this coming year’s edition features members of Vancouver’s Little Guitar Army, the city’s homeless soccer team (Vancouver Portland FC), a cabana boy and more! Once again, partial proceeds will go towards BASH (last year we raised 1,000 dollars and donated a bunch of gently used gear. On that note, if you have gear sitting around, unused, contact us so we can get it to BASH. Or, if you like, drop it off at the East Van rink yourself, to Jay.).
