Vinyl Val, or just Val to her close friends, has been around
the rink a few times! Her initiation into Ladies Ringette was
in the Spring of 2000 at the BC Millennium Ladies Ringette Tourney.
There she was sportingly dressed in a Tourney T shirt, 1 knee pad,
and some reeeeeally old skates. She was given a name-and given away as
the tourney's Booby Prize- to the Nanaimo Shooting stars, thus beginning
her career as a Shooting Star. Val now tours the Tourney circuit, signing
sticks, flirting with Zambone drivers, and behaving in an all round less than classy
manner! This year at Chicks On Ice 2001, Vinyl Val got into all sorts of trouble, having her
ego deflated, getting kidnapped by the Calgary Ladies team-where she donned a scarf and
plastic cowboy hat! YEEHAW! Over the last year, Val has lost a few items of
clothing--but she always manages to gain some to balance it!
And so--wherever the Lower Mainland Ladies' Ringette
Tournaments may be---------you will find Vinyl Val, a little worse for wear each year, but
always the most action packed GAL around!!
