Preparations for the much anticipated Pikangikum Youth Challenge are on their way. The tournament will be held during the last week of January and early February. So far there have been over ten communities interested but no one has confirmed yet.
Again, like every youth challenge all meals will be provided to visiting teams as well as accommodations but teams are encouraged to bring sleeping gear. The winter road to Pikangikum is now accessible. The first 8 outside teams to confirm with entry fee will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
Tentative dates for the tournament are Jan. 29, 30, 31, Feb.1.
I am currently working on getting scouts up here from Southern Ontario. If you require additional information please feel free to contact me.
Entry fee for the tournament will be $800.00 / team and this takes care of meals, transportation to arena, discount to nitely entertainment, and tournament passes.
Entertainment has been planned to keep youth and visiting teams busy after hockey games.
A feast will be held to close the tournament with an awards show to follow.
