The list of teams and the game schedules should be posted on our
website http://www.parksvillepanters.com (click on schedule) by
the end of November 2018. 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,
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.
Once your team registration is received and acknowledged, you will
be asked to submit your team roster ASAP so that we can pre-populate
the game sheets. You can do it on line via our web site (http://www.parksvillepanters.
com/index.html). Teams that enter their rosters online before January
4th will receive 15 complimentary beer tickets in their team registration
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.
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 only 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
Spare Coordinators. Their contact information is

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.
Another update will be coming in mid-November. We are looking forward
to seeing you in January.
