Auld Reid Tournament committee says Thank you for your trust,
support and patience as we worked to try and make the 2022 Auld-Reid
Hockey Tournament a great weekend experience in Niagara Falls. We were
very hopeful that vaccinations would be sufficient to keep COVID 19 in
check and allow us to safely hold the 44th tournament. That has been the
consistent caveat to all our efforts from day one.
Unfortunately new daily cases of COVID have continued to rise across
the Niagara region and Ontario since early November and as a result, updated Regional instructions have been issued and COVID protocols
have been upgraded/changed.
We looked at possible ways to ensure compliance (safety) with room
capacity, time limits to shower, potential delays in the schedule for
injuries etc. and still ensure an enjoyable, safe event. What’s
more, the protocols could very well change again leaving no time to
effectively react. Ultimately,
we could not find a satisfactory way to do it.
We feel that no one should get caught up with "what" measures
are mandated as much as "why" measures are needed.
Therefore, our committee has unanimously and regretfully agreed to
CANCEL the January 2022 tournament.
We have not given up on 2022. We will look at a possible combination
hockey/golf event in late spring= would you be interested?
We’d like to thank the City arena staff
and management for working closely with Winston Auld to try make this
tourney happen. Thanks to the many sponsors, restaurants, and hotelswho
were also looking forward to your visit!!
Refunds will be done once you confirm how you want your refund=
We can e-transfer or mail a cheque.
We sincerely hope you will consider coming to Niagara for the weekend
despite the tournament cancellation. Thank you again for your support
Hope you are all able to return next year!!
