Nelson Vargas-Diaz hoists the Redwood Cup

National Director Scott Hill issued the following statement today regarding the 2017 National Championship.

"We would like to host a Redwood Cup national street hockey championship as part of Canada's 150th Anniversary in September 2017.  However, in a minor setback, the funding/grant proposals we had submitted to help cover the costs of this major event have been declined.  We believe there is a likelihood that the event could be broadcast on national television, but moving forward with a plan for this national event will now require more extensive corporate sponsorship support.  We invite any corporations who may be interested in helping to make this event possible to contact our head office in London, Ontario.  We are hopeful that this event will yet materialize and will provide further updates as more information becomes available."
