The UPEI OPen

Had a Great tournament at UPEI. Most of the proceeds went to the food bank. The Famous CeeJay see photo: had his own turkey drive fundraiser and together we donated $840 dollars to the food bank. Thanks for the great idea and you are an amazing competitor.

We are sending our PEI Teams (mens and Womens) to the National Team event in Windsor Ontario. 

Mike Buchannan, Connor Jinks and Liam Jinks have made the Mens side. Our Nate the Great was injured and is still recovering. The womens team is Emma Jinks, Tara  and TBD. Its a great honour to make this side. They will be competing with the best players in Canada on the 16 to 18th Feb. Good luck to all.
