The Charles Hays Rainmakers hosting a number four seeding and a number of years of tournament experience now part of their history, will be looking to book a ticket for a return to Championship Saturday.
Wednesday evening marks their starting point at Provincials, as the Makers' take to the Langley Entertainment Centre courts in tournament action against their opening night opponent the Abbotsford Panthers.
With the goal of a Provincials banner in mind, the Rainmakers face some strong competition this year, with the AAA bracket considered to be one of the hardest paths to a championship, with many a potential upset anticipated along the way.
For the Rainmakers a quick scan of the other fifteen competitors will find a mix of familiar teams and some new arrivals, the latter perhaps more dangerous through their mystery, than those the Rainmakers have faced in previous years.
For 2016 nine teams including the Rainmakers are making a return trip to Langley for this years championship, with seven teams joining the mix for 2016 looking to stake their claim among the veteran squads as a Provincial powerhouse.
