Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.
Longtime sports journalists David La Vaque and L. R. Nelson present their new book, Tourney Time, which tells the stories of the annual state boys’ hockey tournament. Their presentation will highlight some of the key games, the backstories, and the players that made each tournament shine. In their book, interviews with players, coaches, and fans bring firsthand perspectives and insights to the games and tournaments, while in-depth statistics and results reveal the numbers behind the memories. In addition, the authors will share their rankings of the most memorable moments, performances, characters, nicknames, upsets, and more from seventy-five years of tournament play.
Combining archival research, personal recollections, and vivid imagery, Tourney Time offers a detailed and insightful history of the nation’s greatest high school sports event and one of Minnesota’s most cherished institutions.
Copies of Tourney Time will be available for purchase and signing.
Reservations requested, space is limited. Free and open to all.
