IBEW OPC Hockey Tournament 2019Teams came from as far away as Winnipeg and Boston, including two teams from Detroit and teams from Toledo and Ann Arbour, Michigan. This year, Hamilton’s Local 105 hosted the tournament, with member Doug Dunham the main organizer.

“Doug did a fantastic job organizing the tournament. At the Friday night hospitality event, people were having such a good time, they didn’t want to leave,” said Local 105 Business Manager Lorne Newick. “There was a really good feeling at the whole tournament. Lots of good competitive play on the ice, and lots of good company and brotherhood off the ice.”

Organizer Dunham credits teamwork for the success of the event. “A lot of people worked very hard to make me look good – the entire committee and office staff all pitched in.”

The tournament champions were:

  • ‘A’ Division Champions: Local 586 Ottawa
  • ‘B’ Division Champions: Local 773 Windsor
  • ‘C’ Division Champions: Local 252 Ann Arbor
  • Over Forty Champions: Local 115 Kingston

You can see the full results below.

“The best part for me,” says Dunham, “was Friday night. It was a great opportunity to see people I only get to see once a year.”

Dunham is also very proud of the Over 40 division, which was created by the 2014 Hamilton Hockey Committee.

“I am really glad it’s stuck, and I really hope it continues to grow. There were five teams this year and I’d love to see more. It’s a great chance for us older guys to get out on the ice and have a good time.”
