Keep your stick on the ice
The North American Cup will be
contested for this year without a Boston trip
Yes folks, it's official the 33rd edition of the North American Cup will be occur on Canadian soil for the first time ever. Mark your calendar for April 14th 2007. The game will take place at the Bonaventure Arena on Cote de Liesse in Montreal. As a result, the final Friday night game will be moved ahead to Good Friday (April 6th) instead of April 13th.
The LTHC team will consist of players that have supported the Boston trip over the last 32 years. This game also replaces the annual invitational tournament will held its final event in 2006.

The 32nd and Final Boston Trip
As you read on the front page, Bustin Boston's last hurrah is coming up in 2006. There are many reasons for this decision. Here are but a few:
It's getting harder for the yanks to field a team of older guys for us to beat.
Most bus companies have stopped going to the U.S.A. (probably because of insurance)
The ones that do are charging exorbitant fees (probably because of insurance)
We want to pull the plug while we have enough strength to do so
We are all running of precious brain cells
Many of the retired players are having a hard time planning their vacations around the Boston trip (Boo Hoo)
The organization of the whole trip does take quite a bit of time and the few people involved have better things to do.
Let's face it. We're not that good anymore
The Wyder Cup annual golf challenge has been so successful that we find it easier entering the twilight years slowly swinging a club instead of watching little speed skaters buzzing around you like mosquitoes.
This by no way means the end of Monday and Friday hockey. That will go on forever as the next generation is slowly filling in the gaps left by our older players injuries. Nevertheless, we are also announcing the 10th and final Invitational tournament in April. This decision is based on some of the factors above but also that one is getting harder to organize every year as we try to top the previous year. This final tournament will be a doozie as long as we find some entertainment. Johnny Jetblack is not available this year. There is talk of trying to have a Chapeau version of the Wyder cup to keep up the friendships that we have made in Chapeau. More on the Invitational soon.
Remember. we are not getting older, we are getting smarter. Click here for a view at some history of the Boston Trip
