Rain puts a damper on plans for Tim Hortons Backyard Classic

The heavy rain Wednesday has washed out the eighth annual Tim Hortons Backyard Classic charity outdoor hockey tournament, scheduled Friday through Sunday at the Angry Buffalo at the Rose Garden, 2753 Wehrle Drive, Lancaster.

Organizers announced Wednesday evening that they will make an additional announcement regarding the tournament “within the next 24 to 48 hours.” Updates on the tournament will be posted on the event’s Facebook page.

“Our No. 1 focus is to make sure that this event takes place and uphold our donation commitment to the beneficiary, the Buffalo Sabres Sled Hockey team,” said chairman Chris Taggart.
