ST. PAUL, Minn. â€“ January 21, 2011 â€“ 3Mâ„¢ Thinsulateâ„¢ Insulation has announced it is proud to sponsor the US Pond Hockey Championship to be held January 21 – 23, at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. In its sixth year, the tournament sees 30,000 die hard hockey fans who withstand the frigid Minnesota temperatures to watch their favorites teams face off.
3Mâ„¢ Thinsulateâ„¢ Insulation is providing 150 Championship volunteers with 3Mâ„¢ Thinsulateâ„¢ Thermal Insoles to help keep feet warm during bitter wintry days. Thinsulate thermal insoles provide exceptional comfort thanks to a patented bonding process, combined with moisture management and odor protection for all types of cold weather footwear to help keep feet warm and dry.
The US Pond Hockey Championship combines the passion of a simple childhood memory and the strength of community spirit to bring together 260 teams from 30 states, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom with a love for the sport. The goal is to celebrate the joy of hockey “the way nature intended” on a Minneapolis lake each January with players reuniting with their youth and friends over a weekend where they can play pure hockey and be kids again for three days.
â€œThis is a fun event that 3Mâ„¢ Thinsulateâ„¢ Insulation has proudly participated in for the past three years,â€ said Gina McCabe, Business Communications Supervisor for 3Mâ„¢ Thinsulateâ„¢ Insulation. â€œThinsulate insulation is one of the world’s most recognized brands in outerwear, footwear and accessories and the new Thinsulate thermal insoles are the perfect companion to footwear for anyone standing on the ice watching the US Pond Hockey Championship.â€
