All teams got away safely Sunday before snow hit P.E.I.


Accommodation operators were pleased with both the large number of guests drawn by the Spud as well as the behaviour of the young hockey players.

"It was one of the best Spud tournaments I've done in years,'' said Tracey Feehan, front desk supervisor with Best Western Charlottetown.

"They were very well-behaved young gentlemen.''

Feehan says the Best Western was sold out all weekend with people, from fans to players, connected to the 2013 Mark's Work Wearhouse Spud Minor Hockey Tournament.

Tournament director Philip Brown says he spoke to most hotel and motel operators in the Charlottetown area. Their assessment of the weekend that drew 47 teams from the mainland seemed to echo Feehan's praise.

"The hotel/motel operators said that it was a great weekend,'' said Brown.

"No problems from any of the teams and they said it was one of the best Spud tournaments in years.''

Brown says all teams got away safe and sound Sunday, able to cross over the bridge before the weather turned nasty.

Some hotels and motels were willing to give cut rates to keep the hockey entourage an extra night, but all chose to scoot home.

"It was a good tournament,'' Brown added.

"It was great hockey too.''

    kudos to all the young Spud hockey players and their coaches. You are all to be commended for your excellent attitude and behavior. As a hockey gram to two grandsons from Summerside I know the stringent schedule they have to keep, dress code for tournaments, good manners and behavior at all times. You are a fine example to ALL young people across Canada. Congratulations to you all.
