IMO it was a mistake to have it the same weekend as the Sr. Chowder Cup. My kid is playing because it was in his contract. I'm sure other players took one of the opportunities to play in the CC that come along.
The first lesson the USPHL learned is this weekend. Scouts at the Chowder Cup that took a ride to Marlboro wish they had that 3 hours of their life back. If they can't compete with a summer tournament(CC), good luck competing for players for the season.
