Frankenfest Hotel Information:

Since it is a busy Columbus Day Weekend, Rose has booked a block of 15 rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott West Orange, for Saturday, October 7, 2016, for $164.00/night. The hotel is very convenient to the arena (3 miles) and this cost includes a hot deluxe breakfast. Rates are a bit higher due to the holiday weekend but if you think you can make it to this tournament; before 9/16/17 (when all uncommitted rooms will be released as well as our group rate), click here:  Book your group rate for Southern CT Storm Hockey

If calling, use group name: Southern CT Storm Hockey. Again, rooms are in high demand, and after that date they will release any uncommitted rooms.

 

Some fun things to do before or in between tournament games:

Visit the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo, http://turtlebackzoo.com. It is directly next to the Richard Codey Arena.  Also, a short drive down Northfield Avenue is the Essex County Mini Golf Safari, http://turtlebackzoo.com/mini-golf/

 

This is a very special tournament – the Devils really do it up big! They are terrific hosts throughout the tournament and provide a complimentary dinner dance on Saturday night. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact Rose at 203-673-2601 or email her at rtomasio7662@att.net.
