2009 is a year of BIG change!
For the first time in tournament history.... we're on the move! The Halifax Forum Complex will be the host facility for all games and on-site activities .
Games Friday Sept 25 will be staged at The Forum and the Civic Arena will be used for all games on Saturday Sept 26.
Tournament Managing Director Chris Larsen said, "We have been extremely well treated at Saint Mary's since our inaugural year in 2003. We wish them much continued success in the completion of the highly anticipated new arena on campus. In the meantime, we are delighted to bring our tournament to the Halifax Forum Complex for 2009."
Regional VP for Molson, Strat Kane added, "We are looking forward to the attributes that The Forum provides to extend and expand our on-site hospitality offerings. Players can expect to enjoy their favourite Molson products along with selected food service offerings in the Molson Player Lounge." Kane, a key member of the Old Star Huskies added, "Plans are underway to provide big-screen TV viewing and other creature comforts in the lounge to augment the food and beverage offerings".
Larsen added, "In addition to the exciting new hospitality offerings at the Forum, players will continue to enjoy 'bonding experiences' in downtown Halifax. On Friday evening, BUBBA RAYS will be the spot for congregating after the games. Saturday night after the Awards Ceremonies at the Forum, the 'after party' moves to the TOOTHIE MOOSE."
