To All Teams,
The past 2 months has been a very unprecedented time for all of us and we truly hope everyone is safe and keeping well as that is paramount.
The John “Gus” McCauley Memorial Tournament is part of the foundation in minor lacrosse tournaments and a large piece in history to many of the lacrosse world. We have coaches who once played in the event and have made this one of the high points of their season to compete in what we believe is the best tournament in the province. To us in Brampton and also the McCauley family we look forward to honoring John and his contributions to this great support with this event each and every year and sharing that legacy with everyone that is part of the event.
This was to be our 28th year hosting this great event and as many of you know one of if not the hardest tournaments to gain entry. We had much of the work in hosting completed including the schedule which was going to be released this week. In the spirit of the event, to honor John and to have some fun and we plan to have this year’s event to be a “fantasy” tournament. We will be reporting scores throughout the weekend as we would through our Twitter @BMLA1943 so players, coaches and families can follow along as they would if we were having the event live and at least make this a lacrosse weekend during our social isolation. We, both as a Tournament committee and the McCauley family, feel that having this fantasy weekend we can have some fun, have something to follow along with over the weekend that makes us happy and also continue to host the event. We encourage you to share the schedule, our details on the “fantasy” weekend and have your players and families follow us for the May 29 – 31 weekend on Twitter.
We will begin the refund process this week and ask that you confirm the address to which your organization cheque is to be mailed so we have current information.
See you in 2021!

McCauley Tournament Director and BMLA President
