This is Ted Butler in Lexington, KY and I would like to invite and your Hockey Organization to participate in our "Winter Golden Stick Tournament." The dates for this event are Saturday, February 1st and Sunday, February 2nd. We are working to make this as much fun as any of the National Tournaments, if not better. Look at what we will have:
-Minimum of 3 Games
-Two of the best ref's there are: Jim Dunham and Bill Cloutier(These guys do TORHS, NARCh, ECHO, USA Inline and Jim is the Chief Ref for the CRHL).
-Age Divisions: 8 and Under, 10 and Under, 12 and Under, 14 and Under, 17 and Under and Adult
-Awards for 1st and 2nd Place
-Several Prizes including at least 1, maybe 2 or 3 Easton Synergy Sticks, some Inline Hockey pants, wheels and some other stuff that kids really want!!!
-Each player will receive a Welcome kit with plenty of goodies in it. A couple of the goodies will be especially attractive to the parents as they will include very good Discount Coupons for some of Lexington's best restaurants.
-There is also a Host Hotel with a very good discount.
-A free ticket for each player for the ECHL game in Lexington the Friday night before the tournament starts (January 31st at 7:30pm). And yes, the Lexington Men-O-War are actually playing the Cincinnati Team!!! That is pretty funny how that worked out. At the ECHL game, there will be a time where all our kids will be recognized over the PA System which should be pretty cool. We'd love it if all the kids wore their team Jersey to the Men-O-War game. Of course, going to the game is optional but it really could be a lot of fun for the team. We will also provide a few tickets for parents that wish to go and chapperone their players. Just let me know how many you will need.
-We are looking into a Hole-In-One type of contest where some selected kids will get to shoot or throw or kick a ball into a hole for a grand prize. We are looking in the neighborhood of $5,000 to $10,000. This should be very exciting.
-The cost of this tournament is $375 and the deadline is Monday, January 20th. Sports Blast is also offering a $25 Early Bird Discount if your team is registered by Monday, January 13th.
