Preparations for the 2019 Parksville Panters January Junket Tournament
are nearing completion. The tournament schedule is
now available on the parksvillepanters.com website. This
year we will have four 60+ teams, four 65+ teams, and four 70+ teams
participating in the Junket tournament.
If there are any errors in the information posted on the website,
please let us know. The slight reduction in the number of teams
participating this year has allowed a later start time in the mornings
(9:30 am) and earlier finish times in the afternoon (4:30 pm).
We typically receive requests from teams to accommodate travel
challenges (i.e. ferry boat arrival and departure times, two-hour
drive times, etc.). We will do our best to accommodate these requests
when finalizing the tournament schedule. However, now that the schedule
is posted on the web site, it would be appreciated if requests for
last minute schedule changes be kept to a minimum as it requires
all teams involved to agree on any change.
If you have not already done so, please register your
team on-line via our web site (http://www.parksvillepanters.com)
and then enter your team roster on-line
ASAP so that we can pre-populate the game sheets. Teams that enter
their rosters online before January 4th will receive 15 complimentary
beer tickets in their team registration packages.
If you have already mailed your registration fees ($600) to Mr.
Neal Wood, that is great. If you have not yet mailed your registration
fees, and given the current challenges with Canada Post, please
bring a cheque for your team’s fees to the team registration
table in the lobby of Oceanside Arena on January 8th. Cheques should
be made out to the Parksville Panters Hockey Club.
This year’s itinerary is very similar to last year including
a beer garden with complimentary snacks and pizza throughout the
day and of course, great senior hockey. Complimentary coffee
and hot chocolate will be served at the arena concession stand.
When you arrive on Tuesday January 8th, managers should please
look for the registration table where you can pick up your team's
registration package. As well, your team will be assigned an Ambassador
to assist you throughout the tournament should you need any assistance.
Registration packages will include tournament schedules, 15 complimentary
beer tickets for those teams that have entered their
rosters on the website by January 4th, and contact information
for your Ambassador and spare coordinator.
If your team finds itself short of players, or if you know of any
individuals that do not have a team, you should contact one of the
Tournament Spare Coordinators. Their contact information is shown
The 2019 Junket Tournament Spare Coordinators are:
60+ Joe MacDougall (204-730-2522) firstname.lastname@example.org
65+ Darryl Smith (250-228-3070) email@example.com

If teams have two sets of jerseys, they are encouraged to bring
them both. The Tournament Committee will have a spare set of white
jerseys and black jerseys for those teams that do not have two sets.
Teams are also advised to bring a padlock for the dressing room.
Pucks will be provided for the warm-up and game.
Rules of Play:
The rule book of the Canadian Adult Recreational Hockey Association
(CARHA) will apply.
Tournament rules include:
- the three penalty disqualification rule will apply.
- two line passes are permitted
- game sheets must be filled out and signed by team managers and
include a complete roster of all players and their jersey number
- sportsmanship and safety are integral parts of old-timers hockey.
Players and officials must be treated with respect both on and off

using the cat-eyes style of mask/cage must complete a waiver which
will be included in the registration package.
- the home team is the first team listed on the game schedule

Troubleshooting and Dispute Resolution Sub-committee.
Games will include a 5 minute warm-up, a 22 minute stop time period,
a 2 minute break between periods, a second 22 minute stop time period
and then we need everyone off the ice so we can do a 15 minute flood.
Depending on time remaining after the first period, the second period
may be shortened slightly to keep on schedule.
All players must be of proper age as of December 31, 2019. Goalies
in the 60+ and 65+ divisions can be up to 5 years younger than 60
or 65. Goalies in the 70+ division can be up to 10 years younger
Captains, please ensure that your players have been advised that
they cannot play for more than one team unless a Tournament Official
provides prior clearance.
Our tournament has obtained 3rd party liability insurance. Insurance
for individual Parksville Panters has been acquired in conjunction
with the Parksville Golden Oldies Sports Association (PGOSA). It
is our understanding that CARHA members are covered by the insurance
provided for its members. If your team and players are not insured
as outlined above, the Parksville Panters organization encourages
you to make your own arrangements.
We appreciate your participation in our senior hockey tournament,
and we are looking forward to seeing you in January.
