All-Native action continues in Rupert
For up to the minute details of the tournament, check

Tuesday, a few let downs but the tournament is heading into the time where knock outs are happening. We have seen many true barn burner games so far and with more coming.
Three Masset teams have been knocked out of the tournament now; Masset Womens, Masset Intermediates, Masset Masters.
They all fought hard and have some promising years ahead of them. I was all caught up in the Opening Ceremonies last night and did not get to two of their games, but being in the same building I was able to have a heads up on them.
The opening ceremonies were fantastic, absolutely no room in the main gym.
The Haida Chiefs and Matriarchs were brought in and then the Dance groups. Must say that the leaders of our dance groups did an amazing job with this . The gym floor was outlined roughly by 130 dancers, drummers, and paddlers. A
true moment to be proud of them all. I have never seen them like this and the gym was mere pandemonium with the dance groups singing in the teams and when the nine Haida teams walked in, I could not hear myself even thinking.
