Abstract The case follows Scott Crowder, the founder of the Pond Hockey Classic, and details the challenges he confronts in organizing pond hockey tournaments. The case emphasizes the key issues of climate change and its impact on organizing an outdoor event which is reliant on arctic weather conditions that freeze large bodies of water, including lakes. The case also considers the implications and impacts of the unstable and unpredictable weather conditions on planning and managing events and on sport tourism.
