Have any of you checked out the schedule? What a scam. The host team almost plays everyone on their second game of the day? Who made this schedule up? Who approved this?

Try to keep up, every host of the Prezzy since I can remember, (going back about 20 years), has set up the schedule to their advantage for both compettive and financial, (gate), reasons. It happens at the Prezzy, Minto, Founders, Memorial, World Juniors Hockey. Take your aluminum foil helmet elsewhere please.

the schedule still should be a round robin with the host team playing the late game,and not grown men playing two games in one day for a national championship.

7 team tournaments are very difficult to schedule. They are playing a full round-robin. This means 6 games in 5 days. On one of the days, a team has to play 2. Everybody has a two game day; this is why you bring 25 players. I have seen a lot of president's cup schedules over the years, and this is one of the best (considering the 7 teams).

Another key point. The CLA passed a comprehensive reform of all national championships at the AGM in November 2009. This includes box, men's field, and women's field. Minor nationals and major nationals. Among other items, starting in 2011 there will be generic schedules drafted by the CLA for all national championships. Hopefully this will end the days of host (all hosts over the years) from manipulating the schedule.

For JrB fans, it also ends the days of the invitational tournament. Starting in 2011, it is one team per province plus host. If this applied in 2010, only the Calgary Mountaineers would be representing Alberta and you would not see the Calgary Chill and Edmonton Warriors. Everybody else at Mimico is a provincial champ or host.

just out of curiosity ..is there a fee /what is it for an out of province team to play...l understand only wanting 1 team representing a province outside of the host for various reasons ...but if they have to pay a fee aand you loose this,are they shooting themselves in the foot?
