Over 13000 km Travelled…

NOV 15 CHE Hockey

3 weekends, 3 locations, , 16 trophies, 72 teams, 124 games, 1612 medals and 13036 km traveled by the cup and the Tournament of Champions season is officially over for 2014.  After traveling more than 25% around the world and a lot of overhead hoists the cup has had to be sent in for some small repairs, but overall the TOC season was a huge success.

It all started in sunny Las Vegas where Jamey Hicks and Mike McCabe got the TOC season started November 6 – 9.  33 teams from all over North America and 1 from Europe met in Sin City to determine whether they could truly be a Champions Champion and I’m not referring to Harry Potter.  Only 8 teams were able to scramble to the top and hoist the Cup on Saturday night.  A hearty congrats goes out to:

  • Pat and the Wickham Bears from Mansonville, QC
  • Lenette and the One Timers from Haines Junction, YK
  • Barry and Aces from Richmond, BC
  • Joe and the Stingers from Whitestone, NY
  • Al and the Silver Bullets from Winnipeg, MB
  • Tina and the Hot Shots from Las Vegas, NV
  • Claude and the Blades from Cornwall, ON
  • Nicholas and DVDA from Palmdale, CA

From Las Vegas the cup traveled 3600 km to the hockey mecca of Montreal for the November 14 – 16 event.  28 teams from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Connecticut, New York, Ontario, Manitoba, Massachusetts and Quebec were privileged to see the Habs walk all over the Bruins on Thursday night, then test their metal against other other Champions from 2014.  Although all great teams, only 6 would get the chance to drink champagne on Sunday.  Congratulations to:

  • Eric and Tetreault Financial from Plattsburgh, NY
  • Glen and the Bulls from Toronto, ON
  • Pierre and the Boys of HBA from Quebec City, QC
  • Ian and Blackhorse from Bay Roberts, NF
  • Blake and the Wubba Kongs from West Haven, CT
  • Laura and the Beavers from Ottawa, ON

Finally the cup headed all the way out to majestic Banff, Alberta for the final installment of the 2014 TOC events.  Just 2 of the 10 teams were lucky enough to get their hands on the cup, but luckily Chad Cavanagh was able to seduce this stunning bull elk to hold still long enough for the great shot above.  CHE sincerely congratulates:

  • Don and the Chiefs from Calgary, AB
  • Rockson and the Wolves from Calgary, AB
