Chris' Challenge Cup
Hockey Tournament - Feb 4, 2006
A hockey tournament was held at Prud'homme Saskatchewan on February 4, 2006. Money raised went to the Saskatoon Catholic Schools Foundation in support of the Chris Roy Memorial Scholarship at Holy Cross High School in Saskatoon Saskatchewan.
We would like to thank Chris' aunt and uncle Ann and JP Hounjet for the planning and organization of this very successful event. It was successful on two fronts: money raised will allow the memory of Chris to continue on through the Scholarship, and it brought friends and family together to visit and play a game that Chris loved. Thank you to the many family and friends who attended this event as well as to the community of Prud'homme. Aside from the hockey tournament, people bowled and played cards and the day ended with a wonderful meal.
A total of eight teams participated in this three-on-three hockey tournament.

The Chris Roy Memorial Cup (above) that we have been using for all of the scholarship fundraisers was made by Chris when he was in grade 11 or 12. He made it out of 200 small pieces of wood, cut at angles, glued together and then put on a lathe. He had intended on having hockey tournaments in our backyard rink, rewarding the winning team with their names on this cup, but unfortunatly he never got the chance. We thought it was very appropriate for us to use it. He would be truly amazed by the events people have put on and the many people who have helped and supported us in these events. We thank you all very much.
