BurMac game to return to St. FX Campus

Posted at 2:13 pm on February 21, 2017 | Filed Under: News

 Plans are underway to bring the annual challenge hockey game between two St. FX residences back to the university campus.  In a release, the Students Union says the BurMac Winter Classic has been tentatively scheduled to take place near the end of March at the Keating Centre.  It will feature a game between the Burke and MacIsaac residences.
A working group presented recommendations to St. FX administration on how the game would proceed.   Commitments were reviewed and supported by both residences.  Students Union President Taylor Chase says he’s pleased that an approach has been developed that promotes a positive atmosphere and allows the game to proceed.
Since 2003, the BurMac Cup had been held at the Antigonish Arena.  However, the Town and County of Antigonish announced last March it would not permit the Arena to be used for the 2017 game.  The two municipalities were acting on a recommendation from the Arena Commission.
