Students Union President says cancelling BurMac game was the only option

The annual challenge hockey game between the Burke and MacIsaac residences at St. FX University has been cancelled.  There had been plans in recent months to bring the BurMac Cup back to the university campus after the Town and County of Antigonish decided not to permit the 2017 game to be played at the Antigonish Arena.   The 2017 game was tentatively scheduled to be played at the Keating Centre at the end of March, under conditions that were formed in a policy.

Chase says he is not sure what this will mean for the future of BurMac for 2018 and on. He hopes that some of the issues that caused the cancellation of the game can be resolved in the residences across St.FX

2017 BurMac Cup Cancelled

The annual challenge hockey game between the Burke and MacIsaac residences at St. FX University has been cancelled.  There had been plans in recent months to bring the BurMac Cup back to the university campus after the Town and County of Antigonish decided not to permit the 2017 game to be played at the Antigonish Arena.  The 2017 game was tentatively scheduled to be played at the Keating Centre at the end of March.
However  Students Union President Taylor Chase and the University’s Head of Student Services Bob Hale say in a joint statement that it is not in the best interest of students or the greater St. FX campus community to proceed with the game this year.  The statement says while there were many positive efforts made toward the reintroduction of the event, ongoing conduct isues are simply beyond the acceptable level to continue with the game.
