Williams Lake will play host the 2014 Coy Cup Senior Male AA Coy Cup provincial hockey championship.

BC Hockey made the announcement late October the Williams Lake Stampeders had been chosen as the host team for this year’s tournament.

The championships will be held March 14 at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

“As the defending champions we are very excited to bring this calibre of hockey to Williams Lake,” said Karen Gertzen, host commitee member and director with the Williams Lake Stampeders.

“We know our fans and supporters will welcome all the visiting teams and their families to our great community and we promise a first-rate tournament.

“It is through the generosity of our sponsors and our fans that we are able to present the Coy Cup to Williams Lake and we look forward to seeing some great hockey.”

In preparation for the tournament a group of Williams Lake Stampeders directors and volunteers have organized a fundraising dinner, dance and auction.

John Margetts, a volunteer with the club, said the dinner will be held Nov. 16 beginning at 5 p.m. upstairs at the Williams Lake Curling Club.

“We’re looking for a few volunteers to help out that night and with the Coy Cup tournament in the spring,” Margetts said.

Tickets are $30 and are available at Chuck’s Automotive and at Margetts Meats on Mackenzie Avenue.

For more information, or if you have any questions or would like to volunteer, contact Margetts at 250-392-2363.

The 2013/14 Coy Cup will use a four-team format involving teams from the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL). Kitimat was the host for the Coy Cup the past two years.

The Coy Cup was donated to BC Hockey to Colonel Coy of the 50th Gordon Highlanders (now the 16th Scottish) of Victoria, B.C.

It is emblematic of the Senior AA Amateur Hockey Championship of B.C. The first Coy Cup was awarded to the Enderby Hockey Club in the 1922/23 season.
