Presidents' Weekend Outdoor Challenge Participant 

It was an amazing weekend! The hockey was great! The class of the team’s players, coaches, and parents was absolutely fantastic! Meeting people from all those different places was a great experience! You put on an A+ tournament, and we would definitely come back! The facilities were great, and the outdoor experience was loved by all of us from Canada! The reseeding after the “quarterfinal” round was brilliant and kept everyone playing meaningful games longer than other tournament formats. You did a great job! We were all impressed! Can’t think of anything I’d change. The tournament was pretty great!!
