2011 Tournament Update – March 23

I hope all is well.  I have a few updates on the tournament to pass along.  

Pure Hockey Raffle:  First, one of our tournament sponsors, Pure Hockey, is having a raffle for two pairs of Bauer skates.  The raffle will take place Thrusday night at the opening ceremony.  You do not need to be present to win.   Paul Donato from Pure Hockey is copied on this email.  He is going to send out the raffle info, I am hoping you will pass this along to your teams.  Everyone who enters will get a 20% off coupon, which can be used in their stores or online.  A big thanks to Pure Hockey, they are sponsoring our Friday night coaches game, and have been a friend to our program for a long time.  

Airport Bus Transportation: For teams that need a bus from Logan airport to the tournament, there are two companies that are giving us a discount rate.  I'll post this on the website as well:

Banquet: Finally, for the tournament banquet, we would like to get a final headcount by April 4.  I'm sure many of you (like me) are still waiting on families to get back to you.  Hopefully a deadline will help spur things along.  

Game Schedule:  We are behind on the game schedule, I'll have the matchups done by tomorrow night, and am sending those to Mike Hickey and Michael Liotta for their input.  Once that is done we'll make the game schedule.  That should come out next week.  

 Thanks to everyone, the excitement is building in Boston as the date approaches.
