Preparations begin for Fred Page Cup tournament

Next spring the Town of Hawkesbury will be the site for the Fred Page Cup Tournament, one of the biggest hockey events in Eastern Canada.

“This is a fairly large event,” said Nicole Trudeau, parks and recreation director. “We will be seeing lots of people coming here.”

The Hawkesbury Hawks Junior A Club succeeded in claiming host privileges for the 2020 tournament. Now the club and the parks and recreation department will begin working together on all the pre-tournament planning needed to guarantee a successful venue, before the first puck drops at the Robert Hartley Sports Complex in May for the five-day tournament.

“We will be looking for volunteers,” said Trudeau. “We are getting together a tournament planning committee.”

A call for assistance with tournament organization will go out through the municipal website and other media, once the planning committee has reviewed and compiled a list of needs for the tournament. Trudeau noted that other Fred Page Cup tournaments at other venues have meant at least several thousand visitors coming in to a community during the five days of the event. Hawkesbury’s Robert Hartley Sports Complex has a 1000-seat capacity for its arena.

“This will give us a good visibility profile for Eastern Canada, and Canada as a whole,” she concluded.

Work continues on the Ecolomondo project, a “green” addition to Hawkesbury’s industrial sector and the company is optimistic about having its new showpiece recycling facility ready soon.
