Officiating Meeting
The officiating meeting will probably be on Friday April 22nd around 21h30 at the venue. We are also currently evaluating other options.

The tournament is set to run according to this schedule. The first game on the Saturday is at 8:00 and the last game on the Sunday should be done by 18:30.
There will be an exhibition game on the Friday night. While the application form will ask you for your Friday availability, the game staffing is left at the discretion of the Montreal Officiating Board and is not under the purview of the Beast of the East THR / THNSO.
