General Info


The tournament is sponsored by the Eagles Ice-A-Rena.  This year we will register up to 32 total teams.  Registration cost will be $600.00 US (all checks, money orders or any form of payment must be made out to U.S. funds).  Please have your entry form delivered to our office by March 10, 2016.  Entry in the tournament guarantees each team 3 games, a free post-game beer, a great time and the chance for additional play-off games and trophies.  All games will be played at the Eagles twin-rink facility. 

NEW for this year a 35 & older division will be added.  The 35 & older division (anticipated to be smaller in teams) will consist of all players being 35 or older, see rules page.  Get your entries in as early as possible to ensure your team gets in this division.  The open division will continue to be the same as always, see rules page.  For ALL teams that participated in the 2015 NWC, we will guarantee your team a place in the tournament with a paid entry until February 27th.  For those of you that are new to the tournament, we will fill remaining openings on a first come basis, so get your applications in early!!

The Beer Garden will operate as it did last year – outside in the rink parking lot.  Please let your players know there will be no alcohol allowed in the bleachers or lobby areas of the arena and that all players and spectators must be 21 years of age to access the Beer Garden.

As in the past few years, Tailgate parties in the parking lot will not be allowed.  This is the only way to curb underage drinking and help ensure everyone’s safety.

The tournament rules are enclosed with your invitation. Please read carefully, we would hate to have to make a hard decision.

We hope you can join us March 25th to 27th 2016.  If you have any questions about the tournament, please call Tim at the Eagles Ice-A-Rena, (509) 489-9303; or Barry at (509) 863-3999 or e-mail Barry at cbkilburn@msn.com.  If you want more applications or information on anything at the Eagles Ice-A-Rena go to the Eagles web site at www.eaglesicearena.com

Sincerely,
