The third Annual Hollyburn Winter Classic moved to new dates and with a different format.  The tournament was divided into two weekends (similar to the nationals), Feb. 16-19 and Feb. 23-26. This allowed more capacity and ensured all players have an opportunity to play.  Players had to play in their correct age category, but some were permitted to play in two age categories if capacity allowed.
