Just wanted to let you know what a great time all of our families had in playing in the Ultimate Tournaments. Everything ran very smoothly from the hotel stay to the hockey games played, you did a great job.

I wanted to thank you again for such a well run and organized tournament, our kids had a blast this weekend. Who knew a hockey tournament /water park combination would be such a hit! Our coach asked me to send you our information for a banner. We would love to get it hung in our brand new home rink, and will definitely recommend your tournament to others. Tournament recommendations are huge in our club, we also know which ones to avoid when possible so we'd love to give you some advertising. Thanks again for a great weekend!"

Thank you for a great weekend. Is it at all possible to get an address for the Canada team that we played. Our boys want to send them a little something and a thank you letter to them. They had a great time playing against them. Thank you."

"Again - great experience last weekend. I will be submitting an article to a local sports magazine regarding your tournament. Is there any thing specific you would like me to share, ie: dates for next year Please let me know. Our team came alive the last two games- played up to their potential fun was had by all."

I am the assistant coach of the Sabres, we very much enjoyed the tournament 2/22 weekend. All of our parents enjoyed how well the tournament was run; information was well presented in a timely manner, and we appreciated that each rink was well staffed. The hosting rink(s) staff were great at every game (all 3 rinks!!), and I know you and your crew were running around like crazy keeping it all together and working hard! You guys did do a great job, and we want to recognize your hard work. I can also tell you that the parents of the other Sabre team participating last week enjoyed the weekend, (if not the scoreboard!), and I have heard great things from other Sabre squirt and peewee teams that attended in previous weekends. Thanks again for a well run event weekend!"
I just wanted to send a note of thanks for a great tournament. Our team had a great time and had some very competitive games. It was very well organized and we have already discussed that this one will be on our short list at the beginning of the season next year. Looking forward to the next Ultimate Tournament. Sincerely,"
-Meramec Squirt AA Head Coach
Just want to say thank you to you for the tournament. The boys were so very excited to actually win. We had gone to Michigan for a tournament in October and my son was the only one who scored the only goal. To have all of the boys so pumped up about the whole weekend was a great change. They came back and made it into the NIHL playoffs too (we did not think we were going to make it, but squeeked in). Thanks,"
-Huskies Pee Wee Bronze

"I want to thank you for all of the effort that you did on putting on the Wisconsin Dells tournament the weekend prior to Thanksgiving. Hoffman Estates Pee-Wee team had a wonderful time and enjoyed playing in the tournament! It was a great memory by all and helped bring the team closer together."

"Hello John. We had a good time at the tourney this past weekend at the Dells. See you next year!"
- Hudson Red Raiders, Peewee team
"Just wanted to convey my thanks for a wonderful tournament. Not only did I not receive any complaints, all comments were positive. Accommodations were also excellent. Your representatives at the rinks were also very helpful (I'm afraid I do not remember their names).
And last but not least, You were fantastic. I appreciate that you always returned my calls, e-mails and made yourself available on site at the tournament. For a first year venture I truly do not see many ways to improve. I do hope you have a policy where returning teams (managers) get priority next year as I will heartily recomend your tournament to any team I participate with.

"John, Thank you for a wonderful tournament! That was one of the nicest we have ever done!! You guys do a great job!"
-Midwest Training & Ice, Pee Wee Select Manager
"Hi John -
Just wanted to say thanks and it was good seeing you. Hope you made it home ok - we had a white-knuckle trip Monday nite. Aside from the weather on Monday - the tournament was very nice. We went all the way to Canada for a AAA tourny - and there were no action photos, no tshirts, no real tournament feel at any of the rinks.Even though it's the kids playing - it's the parents paying and we like photos and tshirts and schedules posted, etc. (the moms and grandma's anyway) Love the idea of the voucher for a tshirt and the photographers took really good pix. Well done - "
Good Morning John,

-De Pere Squirt A Team
Just wanted to let you know what a great time my whole team had at your tournament. I'm still getting e-mails telling me so. Most of the parents on my team have been in travel hockey for at least 4 years and they told me this was one of the best tournaments they have ever been on. So thank you for all your help and for making it a great tournament. We are having a managers meeting on Thursday and I will pass on to all team managers the great feed back I have gotten from my team and what a great tourament we had. Thanks again,
-Team Manager, Glenview Stars
We had a great time. Overall a GREAT tournament!! Everyone said they would do it again!"
