Cureatz Shinny Tournament celebrates 10th anniversary

Trinity College School welcomed over 130 hockey players, including alumni, parents, staff and friends, for the 10th Annual Collin Cureatz ’02 Memorial Shinny Tournament on Saturday, January 20th at the Peter Campbell Memorial Rink.

This event is a chance for the school community to gather in memory of Collin and support the bursary which bears his name, while taking part in a sport he loved.

After 19 total games for the 12 competing teams, this year’s winners were the Grads ’09 in the Middleside division and, in a tremendous final game, the NoReGretzkys defeated the ’92s in the competitive division.

After the final game, over 100 players and guests moved to the Common Room for some light refreshments, and then to Osler Hall for a terrific sit-down dinner.

Special thanks to the fans and supporters who attended, the Cureatz family and friends of Collin, as well as to the Galpin family for its continued generous sponsorship of the tournament. With record numbers of players and wonderful camaraderie among the teams, this year’s tournament will be remembered as one of the best.
