The North Island minor hockey tournament season begins this week with events in both Port Hardy and Port McNeill.

The Port McNeill Minor Hockey bantam tournament begins tomorrow night and continues through Sunday’s playoff finals at Chilton Regional Arena.

Meanwhile, the Port Hardy Minor Hockey Association will hold its one-day initiation jamboree Saturday, beginning at 9 a.m. at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena.

The tournaments, which serve as major fund-raisers for both associations, will feature raffle tables, 50/50 draws and other prize opportunities.

A concession will be open at each location.

The weekend kicks off a busy stretch of minor hockey tournaments, with the Port Hardy atom tourney the following week and the Port Hardy novice jamboree Nov. 28-30.
