Logitech Ice, the largest ice arena west of the Mississippi River, hosted the Second Annual AAA/AA Labor Day Kickoff event from September 2-5. The extremely successful tournament drew 34 top-notch teams that spanned the United States, stretching from Kansas City to Seattle.
All-in-all, it was a great way for AA & AAA teams to get their 2005-06 season underway. With the success experienced, plans for the 3rd Annual San Jose Jr. Sharks AAA/AA Labor Day Kickoff are already in place. The tournament is slated for Sept. 1-4, 2006 at Logitech Ice in San Jose. Interested teams should contact San Jose Jr. Sharks AAA/AA Committee President Joe Licolli (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to be put on the mailing list for next year.
