The 2018 tournament is coming together very nicely with a great
group of teams scheduled to come! Our 30-team lineup consists of
eight 60+ teams, eight 65+ teams, eight 70+ teams and six 75+ teams.
This year we are introducing a limited underage allowance to the
60+ division (i.e. up to three players aged 55 to 59 years), which
should add to the fun and excitement already characteristic of the
The list of teams and the game schedules should be on our website
http://www.parksvillep anters.com (click on schedule) by the end
of July or early August. If there are any errors in the information
posted on the website, please let us know. We typically receive
requests from teams to accommodate travel challenges (i.e. ferry
boat arrival and departure times, two hour drive times, catching
late afternoon flights on day 3, later afternoon games for teams
with players still in the 9 to 5 workforce, etc.). We will do our
best to accommodate these requests when formulating the tournament
schedule. However, once 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 insure that you submit
your team roster ASAP so we can have a complete team lists setup
on our web site. You can do it on line via our web site (http://www.parksvillepanters.
This years itinerary is very similar to last year with highlights
being: the Player Reception on Tuesday with free corn on the cob,
wine and cheese; Wednesday night dinner at Cuckoos Trattoria; beer
garden open each day; and of course, great Classic Hockey. A more
detailed list with event times will be forth coming.
When you arrive on Tuesday September 11th, 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 programs and extra
schedules, 15 beer tickets, 15 give-away vouchers (i.e. swiss-embroidered
golf polo shirt), and contact information for your Ambassador and
Dinner tickets for the Wednesday evening at Cuckoos Trattoria Restaurant
(located in Coombs) will be sold for $15 in the Pond Area. This
includes the meal, taxes and a gratuity. There will be two sittings
- one at 4:30 and one at 7:00 pm. Cuckoos offers us a great deal
and the Panters organization further subsidizes the event down to
this low, low price.This a delicious meal, serving family-style
pizza, pasta and salads in a lovely setting. It is a great value
for players, spouses/partners and fans. It is a big hit every year!
