Silver Puck Challenge IV - 2008

[aea_logos/img_spciv_logo.png]Silver Puck Challenge IV would bring a new bracket to the show. With many requests to add a new bracket between the elite players of the A Bracket and the rec-league players in the B Bracket, a hybrid bracket was added to the event. The B+ Bracket has it's own feel and gives stronger players the ability to move up a bracket without being crushed by the highly skilled players in the 'A'.

Fredonia (Tom Briggs) would bring home their second championships with a win over Endurance Fitness (Jon Perz, aka Team Real Diehl). Fredonia would take the opportunity away from Endurance Fitness of getting the three-peat.

Walker Ice & Fitness (Jon Perz) would win the inaugural B+ Bracket championship with a win over Speaker City (Mike Baker).

Barley's Beer Nutz (Kyle Kaliniak) would took the B Bracket with a win over Bob's Bar. (John English).

Team Irish would not return for an opportunity for the three-peat, instead it would be the Ducks toppling the Beavers (Adrienne Ratti) in the Women's championship game. This year would also mark the unfortunate end of the Women's Bracket.

" I got the opportunity to skate in the Hold'em tournament and I'm still passing the word around about how much fun it was. I can't wait for next year's tournament. Definitely a 5 if it can even be rated cuz man, it definitely passed my expectations. Loved it! "
