The Stratford Minor Hockey Association has just completed their fourth year as hosts of the IBAO Alliance Hockey MD Championships. This tournament required a four year commitment from our association so it was a huge undertaking. There were 76 visiting teams and their families each of these four years.
The tournament was a great success. Visiting teams and their families commented that this tournament was second to none that they have ever attended. They also made comments on the friendliness of the volunteers and rink staff. Rinks were utilized in Stratford, St. Marys and Tavistock.
Once again, we send a great thank you to the City of Stratford and all the area local businesses for their sponsorships, accommodations and restaurants. A tournament of this size requires more volunteers than any association has available so also a big thanks to all who volunteered of their time. Many of those volunteers were with us during all four years.
