London, ON - April 9, 2014 - This weekend marks the 39th Annual Ontario Electrical Utility Hockey Tournament sponsored by Power Workersʼ Union and Real Clean Gear. The tournament is open to the public (free admission) and will be taking place at the Western Fair SportsPlex.
Beginning with only six teams, the first tournament was hosted by the Lambton Generating Station in Sarnia. Today, the tournament runs 112 games providing an opportunity for Electrical Utility Companies to participate in a weekend of hockey and renew friendships with other employees they have worked or grown up with. The top three teams from this tournament are invited to the Canadian Electric Hockey Tournament, an event that brings hockey teams from across Canada to a different province each year.
ʺEach year we choose a volunteer charity that helps underprivileged young children participate in sports programs,ʺ says Mike McElwain, tournament director. ʺKidSport has proven to be a huge help with our plans for the tournament, and we know their good work will be further enhanced by any monies raised. ʺ The tournament with support by the Power Workersʼ Union, is aiming to raise $10,000 for KidSport London, a local chapter dedicated to raising funds and helping children in the community gain access to organized sport.
There are 62 teams participating from across Ontario including Windsor, Sarnia, North Bay, Sudbury, Ottawa, Kingston and all spots in between representing approximately 12 different utility companies.
