WILLIAMSVILLE, NY – With the way the weather was on Saturday, it was the perfect time to start setting up outdoor hockey rinks.

Tim Hortons couldn't have planned it any better.

They had volunteers out in Williamsville early in the morning getting ready for the annual Backyard Classic in January. This year, 96 teams comprised of more than 350 people will be taking the ice to raise money for Hasek's Heroes, which provides ice time and equipment to underprivileged kids.
