Wow! What a great weekend. As John Meagher of the Gazette said, it was a perfect 06. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support and participation. Tristan was blessed to have so many great friends.
Boys, it was a
pleasure to watch all of you
come together for your good
friend Tristan and produce
so many great games with so
much positive energy.
It was entertaining,
nerve-racking, and really
good hockey all at the same
time. When I saw how
exhausting the tournament
was for the players I
couldn’t help but think that
this is the type of event in
which Tristan would thrive.
Most importantly, all of you recognized the significance of what this event meant to the Morrissette Perkins family and the extended community in which Tristan so loved to be a part of.
All of the players reiterated that they can’t wait to do this again next year. I’m going to hold you to that promise. Some even made early new year’s resolutions by promising their teammates they would get in better shape. Invitations will go out much earlier so we can all manage our schedules around the event and start our cardio programs.
While the final
numbers are not yet
completed, we have already
generated a net profit in
the neighbourhood of $3,400.
For those of you that were
unable to participate due to
other commitments but would
still like to support the
Special thanks to Susan Grand of the Pearson Education Foundation who showed up on Day 1 to help with the paperwork for the tax deductible donations at the front desk. She will continue to help with the collecting and allocating of the profits to a worthy cause within the Lester B Pearson School Board and John Rennie High School all in Tristan’s name.
No event like this can operate without the cooperation of volunteers. We had more volunteers than we could find work for as it seemed everyone wanted to help To all of you that helped make the event run smoothly, we thank you for:
What began as an article written in the West Island Gazette 9 days before the tournament, began picking up momentum with other medias. The event was covered by CBC Radio, CBC Television and Global Television with many participants sharing their thoughts.
Richard Martineau went on the ice with his GoPro Camera and provided some up close action. Nicely edited and with both music and hockey sounds, the 2 videos are instant classics. Please click on the links to watch with friends and families.
All of the above would not have been possible without the support of the City of Dorval and Hockey West Island. Ice time, on-ice officials and the hospitality room was generously donated by them allowing the event to be as successful as possible. HWI's secretive ice scheduler even provided ice time options while away on vacation. The President refereed for 6 hours. Great involvement.
We look forward to running this event again next year. Already there are suggestions to expand the size including adding a parent division and/or a ringette division. I love it when a community comes together for a great cause.
On behalf of the organizing committee and the countless volunteers, thank you so much. It was truly appreciated.
PS. We welcome
any feedback or suggestions
to improve on the inaugural
tournament. You can also
send in friends' names who
are interested for next
PSS. We have had several requests for TMP 06 apparel. If anyone is interested in purchasing either of these items, simply email me. Hoodies are $35 and blanket is $20.

The PEF Family Fun Run on Sunday, May 1st was a resounding success. Even the rain held off until the race ended.
With revenues over $4000, Fun Run has become an important fundraiser for the foundation. Directors, administrators, teachers and support staff, and parents, dedicated runners and tyros, all enjoyed a healthy fun-filled activity with their children.
Two-year-olds proudly walked the 2km and teenagers ran the 5km with speed and ease. There were more families than ever before! We are very grateful for your support for PEF.
The Fun Run could not have happened without the hard work of the Fun Run Committee: Maria De Wolfe, Rachel Wilson, Nancy Battet, Liliana Sacco, Joanne Malowany, Christopher Fuzessy, Olga Killingbeck, Nan Beaton, Della Graham; and the backing of the LBPSB, the city of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, the 690 Lakeshore Squadron Royal Canadian Air Cadets, Kelly Dashney, paramedic from Lakeshore Volunteer Rescue Squad, members from the Pointe Claire YMCA, someone to warm up the runners from Sports Specialist, and Matt Canavan, Principal of St. Charles Elementary School, who did a wonderful job as MC for the morning. We thank all the sponsors of drinks and refreshments, and did you see those cool water bottles from Fuller Landau? Please see below for a list of all our generous sponsors.
Always there for us for the heavy lifting were Harold Ross of Continuing Education and Don Purcell from Equipment Services.
