Please maintain availability to play all week, in case of schedule changes.

Print and carry a set of all rink directions, available at or, because rink assignments may change.  Also note that all games are subject to starting 15 minutes earlier than scheduled, at the referees' discretion.  And it does happen, because referees don't get paid to wait.

We do not make team hotel reservations for this tournament because some families will find it more convenient to commute to the games from home.  For those who plan to stay in the area, we have had favorable experiences at Rocky Hill Marriott, just east of I-91 Exit 23, tel. 860-257-6000.  You may want to make tentative reservations when schedule is posted.
