Rainmakers North Shore bound for weekend tournament

With a victory in Vanderhoof last weekend in their pockets, the Charles Hays Rainmakers are back on the road this weekend, a long distance road trip that takes the team to the highly acclaimed North Shore Invitational Tournament.

The North Shore tournament is one of the top tournaments on the highly competitive Metro Vancouver Basketball schedule, this year attracting a diverse group of schools to test their skills in the glare of the big city lights.

The Rainmakers will be in the thick of things with 15 other squads from the lower mainland and Vancouver Island. Including such well known Vancouver area squads as Carson Graham, Point Grey, Sentinel, Pitt Meadows, West Van and  Kitsilano.

Also looking to claim the top prize at the tournament will be the highly regarded Queen Charlotte squad, a team which has been seeking out higher levels of competition with an eye on Provincials in the spring.
