Special statement from the Mac’s Tournament Committee:
Thank you to our dedicated fans for reaching out to us about your desire to have the Mac’s Tournament broadcast in various new media formats. It is always great to have such passionate fans interested in our tournament. The tournament committee recognizes the need to make our tournament accessible to all interested fans and participant families. We are currently looking into online webcasting or TV pay per view broadcasts of our tournament. It was something we tried to assemble this year but unfortunately were not able to do in time. We hope it will be in place next year.
In the mean time, we would like to point out that we are a not-for-profit organization that provides roughly 90 high quality games in a 7-day period over the holidays. Each year, we recruit, train and reward over 2000 volunteers in order to make the Mac's experience one that has become renown, not only for participants and their families, but for fans, volunteers and even members of media. We are 100% volunteer run and have been for 35 years.
Our dedicated media volunteers work hard to bring you the most accurate game summaries of each and every game of the tournament. They are posted online, 3 times a day, on our website homepage and Facebook page. Game sheets for each game are posted in the Max Bell Arena for anyone looking for box scores. Every day, all day, we send out pictures, scores and other information over Facebook and Twitter and respond to hundreds of phone calls, tweets, emails and in-person requests from fans and media around the world.
We will continue our efforts to secure access in a broader variety of media. In the meantime, please follow us on Twitter and Facebook, tune into your local Shaw TV channel on January 1st to enjoy the female and male championships, and most importantly, buy tickets to games in order to support this important skills showcase for local minor hockey.
If anyone is interested in setting up a broadcasting partnership, or volunteering in a broadcasting capacity for the 2013/2014 Mac’s Tournament, please email email@example.com and specify how you can help in this area.
On behalf of the Tournament Committee,
Jasmine Griffeth, Media Director
