Curious how this event went today.  Any participants care to share the experience?   Those putting it on seemed to really express the desire to make this a successful first event.  Unable to make this year's as I had already volunteered for a speaking engagement; might try to make it next year if held again.

Thanks.

Made the trip out to support the club..  Well run tournament...prices were top notch .. ease of getting on- off ice was very good with plenty of parking.  Game warden showed up and spent sometime chatting with everyone, he expressed pleasure with the college kids and their efforts so that was good to hear from a man that I'm sure has seen a lot of these tournaments.  The winds were tough but there still was a good turnout. The best part was they were talking about what can be done different for next year so it looks like there is enthusiasm to make it an annual event.
