They don't wanna play the South Dakota teams. That's just what I have heard. The South Dakota Jr. Gold teams are like high school teams because they don't have high school hockey in their area. We played against Pierre and they were amazing.

Went last year, not worth the 8 hour trip down to Rapid City again.

It probably wasn't the team we played. They could have easily played with the ND high school teams. And May-Port had too many if's if a lot of the players could go plus the trip wasn't worth it.

I did a little website hopping in regards to the Pierre team being amazing. In the South Dakota league, they finished the regular season 6th, out of 8 teams. They just played their state tournament and took 4th. Sioux Falls won their state tournament. The South Dakota HS teams would possibly be competitive at the bottom end of the ND state varsity league I would guess. Teams like Sioux Falls who have probably 100+ kids to choose from would be competitive.

Last year the flyers went as an intact team, no "ringers" added on (the only intact one there).
They already played 5 teams from SD in the Thanksgiving weekend swing, like this year. Last year they were 2-3 I think, this year 0-3-2.
They beat Montana and Wyoming teams (also both stacked), but not Sioux Falls.

To get them to go to the regional, several promises were made:
-"quality" game jerseys (were practice jerseys not worth anything)
-no gate fees (parents were charged $25 apiece to watch)
-the there was no trophy for winning 2nd place
-First place was a stacked team of Sioux Falls+Pierre top line added on
-travel/lodging/food costs (added on to already a seasons worth) to the parents (no $ help)

So, competition was uneven (one super stacked team), costs were very high ($500-700 a player), and there was no reward to be seen.
There were no rules changes to this year's event.
So why go?

So, we are waiting...
Who went, how did they do, and what was it like this year?
Hope it was improved.

Unfortunately doesn't look like the two ND teams are doing so well. Would Flyers JG have fared much better?
