Hi Della,

Just a quick thank-you for sliding our Waterloo Bantam Select team into your tournament on short notice (after the Motown Cup debacle). We had a great time and I found it to be an extremely well-organized and well-run tournament. The venues were terrific, the games ran on-time or early and we loved our hotel. Great job and we had a blast (it helps that we also won our Championship!).

Cheers and happy holidays,

– Mardi

Hi James. Just a quick note of thanks for a well run and well organized tournament again this year. Teams in the division were well matched and all the games were entertaining. Much appreciated.

Do you happen to have a link for the website of the photographer that was at the games?

Just a quick note to say thank you…our team, Leitrim Hawks Atom B3, had a great time at the Nov 7-9th tournament.  We almost lost an entire forward line to some faulty GPS guidance for the Bob Fallis rink but it made for some good laughs after the fact.  The boys left the tournament on a high note and it was a great team building opportunity.

Thanks again…

Great tournament James.  Our Georgina midget team lost all 3 games but it was well organized and very competitive.  Good work and thanks for the help with my keys.



Just wanted to say a huge thank you for an amazing tournament!  Well run the referee that was willing to stay and ref our late game was an awesome guy!  We really had a great time, parents are still talking about what a great venue and solidly run tournament this one was!  (Winning our division, after missing our first game, was certainly unexpected after our regular season!)  But the boys just all started to click and all the coaches had taught them started working.  Thank you again for all that you did to assist us with everything.

From one hockey family to another, you were awesome!!

Hope to play there again someday.

Just wanted to drop you a line on behalf of the NL Old Stars team to thank you for a great weekend in Tampa Bay.

Looking forward to returning for another great trip next March



While my guys enjoyed themselves last time, now I understand why they wanted to go back so badly.

Top to bottom, your tournament was a fantastic experience.

We had a number of pictures taken at the Times Forum, as well as with the Russian team we played. Can you kindly have those forwarded to me so that I can share with our team.

Let’s talk soon about hosting something here in Chicago!

Hi James,

Just wanted to let you know we had a great time. This is the first hockey tournament I’ve played in. I have played high level baseball and had a few stints playing low level pro baseball. I spent the last ten years playing in similar baseball tournaments with 10 times the amount of teams and this tournament was run better than any baseball tournament I’ve played in.  This was the most fun I’ve had at any tournament.  We will be back next year. We will either do the Tampa or the Phoenix tournament. It all depends on when our league championship falls next year. Thanks again we had a blast!!!

Good morning James,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for another successful tournament.  We all had an amazing weekend of fun and great hockey and we congratulate you all on how smoothly everything ran.

Good luck with your future tournaments and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

All the best,

“You run a 1st class tournament and we’ve played them all – CANAM, HNA, GSV, and local rink sponsored events. Yours is by far the best experience top to bottom.

Between the rinks you chose, the nightlife in Ybor City, the experience of games on pro-ice, the competition, refs that don’t favor local teams (because they are from out of town), the pre-game experience at the Forum on the pavilion, the video tapes – what more can I say.
We have guys on the team that look forward to this more than Christmas!! (and I am serious as heart attack about that).”

“Thanks for a fantastic weekend.
It was a long, hard road for the Hurley Hackers but somehow we made it to the finals and were competitive. The entire experience was a wonderful high and a much needed vacation from my usual grind. We had a blast! (And I think we surprised the Sh*t out of Bombardier, if not ourselves!!!)”
