34th Annual CARHA Pacific Cup Hockey Tournament January 14-16 #yyj #CARHA #victoriabc

The organizers of the 34th Annual CARHA Pacific Cup Hockey Tournament will host 122 adult hockey teams to Victoria January 14-16, 2011.

Victoria will again welcome over 3,000 players and family from all around western and Canada and the USA.

“The Pacific Cup Tournament annually attracts the most teams that attend our tournaments held across Canada and despite slightly reduced available ice time due to an overlap with the Canadian Figure Skating Championships, we have outstanding registration again this year,“ said CARHA’s Scott Wilson.

“This tournament is an annual highlight on Victoria’s sports calendar” says Hugh MacDonald, Executive Director of SportHost Victoria. “The current economic downturn that has affected travel in general, thankfully, has not affected this year’s attendance. We want to thank CARHA for continuing to host their tournament in Victoria. It brings major economic activity to our region.”
