TRURO - Colchester County council has agreed to support an upcoming broomball tournament to the tune of $2,000.
"That was quite a sport here one time," Mayor Bob Taylor said.
"I think it's great that they're having this," he said, of the Maritime tournament being held in Tatamagouche between Feb. 28 and March 2.
The tourney is expected to attract 14 teams (between 120 and 140 players, aged 18 and over), including two local groups, as well as others from Moncton and various points throughout Nova Scotia.
The money is to come from the municipality's economic development grant fund.
