This past weekend Concord played host to the first major pond hockey tournament of the season.  The 1883 Black Ice Pond Hockey Championship is in its fourth year.  But it's said that the nation's first "organized" pond hockey game was played at St. Paul's School in Concord--back in 1883.  NHPR's Amanda Loder stopped by the event at White Park, and sends us this audio postcard.
