PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” With the winter weather finally hitting Punxsutawney just after Christmas, the weather seemed fitting for the opening day of the 17th-annual Carl A. Truance Holiday Classic.
Truance was an original member of the Booster Club and was known for his support of Punxsutawney athletics.
The Punxsutawney Jaycees originally ran the Holiday Tournament for 26 years be- fore the Booster Club took over in 1995. In 1996, the tournament expanded to include the girls' bracket, as well.
