4 months until the tournament i organize here in Toronto will be ending , getting really excited about this ! When i started this tournament all i wanted was to provide my friends with all the best things i have experienced at the great tournaments i have travelled to around the world . My favorites have free alcohol or at least alcohol on hand , evening events where most if not all the teams will be and of course food readily available .
We provided most if not all of that last year , with a couple minor shortcomings which were overcome by all the FREE beer :) this year will be the same with a few breweries pitching in some free cases for us . The one thing i was not able to do last year but hope to do this year is start to involve teams from outside of Toronto . Obviously the 1 team i really want to come are the Rainman AllStars which i know are working on coming http://www.facebook.com/events/274557435943791/ , if they come this tournament will be one hell of a crazy party . Aside from them if any team from out of town that i have played with or against shows up i am pretty sure it will be a good time .
Don't get me wrong , last years party atmosphere was excellent . I know i got pretty inebriated LOL , and there was this one ref that slept behind a dumpster at the rink with some other crazy ongoings during the tournament . We are adding to the atmosphere by holding events at more then just the Midpoint . Our Friday night will be at the Midpoint http://www.facebook.com/groups/155707541124410/ , Saturday will be at Brooklyn http://www.facebook.com/Brooklynnbar and Sunday conclusion party will be at 1602 Dundas St. W. http://www.facebook.com/groups/275494642502015/ ( no name bar ) . There is a bbq on Saturday with free burgers at the arena with food service at the no name bar all weekend ( 10 min walk from arena ) actually all the places we will go to are within walking distance and yes we can leave our gear at the rink :)
This year we are going from a 6 team tournament to a 10 team tournament with 2 divisions . The tournaments popularity is growing every year and i think next year we will have to add another arena to accommodate more teams as i feel as though i may have to turn teams away this year , which i don't like to do ! If your team is interested in coming to play in my tournament it is June 22-24 , we do not have a website but here is our facebook event http://www.facebook.com/events/246866558691466/ check it out ! Just leave a comment here and i will contact you asap ... if you can't make it this year we hope to see you all at some point in the future !
