Bantam hockey tourney begins Nov. 6

Port McNeill is hosting the event, at which each team will be guaranteed at least four games

The Port McNeill tournament hockey season begins with the bantams hosting an event.

On Nov. 6-8, Port McNeill Minor Hockey will host an eight-team tournament featuring squads from all over the island, says Chay Harper who is organizing the tournament with Rena Sweeney.

All games will be played at the Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill.

Each team is guaranteed four games.

“Our team is looking fierce and ready to host what is sure to be a fun-filled weekend,” said Harper.

The first place team will receive a trophy and medallions, second place will receive a trophy and all players will receive a prize to keep, she said.

A player of the game will be rewarded to each team, every game as well.

Each division hosts a tournament annually, usually with a great turn out.

“Our tournaments are well received with a lot of teams saying it’s one of their favourites,” Harper said.

As well as hockey action, there will be a raffle table featuring donations from local businesses and 50/50 draws.

“On Sunday I expect there will be a puck toss,” she said.

The concession will be up and running all weekend.

Future tournaments in Port McNeill include the Midgets on Nov. 27-29; the Peewees Dec. 4-6; the Female Bantam/Midget Jan. 8-10; Atoms Jan. 15-17; Novice Jamboree Feb. 12-14; and the Initiation Jamboree March 5.
