Operation Heal Our Heroes Winter Classic
This year’s Operation Heal Our Heroes Winter Classic Hockey Tournament (aka Bad Hockey for a Good Cause), will be held on March 7 at Buckskill Winter Club in East Hampton, NY.
For the first time ever, the puck will drop during daylight hours, with the opening game faceoff at 4:30 p.m.
The additional ice time will allow us to accommodate additional team entries.
Participants have the option of entering as individuals or entering as a team.
The intention is to again put individual registrants together on a house team(s) that will compete along with the registered teams.
Each team will play a minimum of 3 officiated, running time games, with the top 2 teams competing in the Championship Game.
The cost to enter a team is $2000. The cost for individual registrants is $175. Captains registering teams will be responsible for assembling their own rosters and making their own financial arrangements with their players.
As always, there will be plenty of food & drink, music and the now infamous after party at Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. All teams/players receive commemorative game jerseys.
All proceeds go to benefit Operation Heal Our Heroes, dedicated to supporting veterans facing the psychological wounds of combat.
Spectator tickets are also available for $50. They include unlimited food and drink throughout the event.
