Some notable figures who participated in the -20 degree weather were Calgary Confederation MP Len Webber, Banff-Airdrie MP Blake Richards, High River's very own chuckwagon racer Jordie Fike, and NHL player Tyler Sloan.

The funds raised were distributed to local charities like the A-T Childrens Project, the Flames Foundation, and KidSport Okotoks.

Barlow thanked the numerous volunteers saying "I cannot say enough about our volunteers, sponsors and, of course, the players who braved the brisk night to hit the ice and help us support some important local charities."

Barlow hopes to make the game an annual event.
