How are they playing this tourney in mass ?
They are called games
09 division in Hudson Nh
09 division in Tyngsboro MA and Hudson NH. However, its no longer a tournament. Its now a showcase so its permissible.
A tournament by any other name is still a tournament!
Per Mass. “Reopening Standards”:
“For the avoidance of doubt, a series of games is still a tournament even if there is a lack of an overall prize, scores, eliminations, brackets, or otherwise.”
Organizers and rink owners risk being fined and closed down if some Nancy reports them for holding an illegal tournament.
How many times are you going to post a tournament is not a tournament? Hate to see the local board of health show up in the middle of the tournament and close it down because some Nancy calls them.
